    Re: Smartboard Airliner

    We have one here, its quite nice. Certainly a good alternative to a smartboard if you don't have the money for one especially considering it works with the standard smart software and the range on the thing is good.

    However I think it is an incredibly cynical product. It is nothing but a Wacom Graphire Bluetooth with a smart badge on it, a paper insert with pictures of pens and (possibly) a custom firmware. However for the "honour" of the smart badge you pay an extra £100.

    I don't know if the Wacom badged product will work with the smart software (probably not) but considering the price difference I think its a con.

    They were my thoughts exactly - an expensive wireless graphics tablet. The staff in question want to use them in addition to the Smartboards they have.

    I can see a use for them - especially the vertically challenged users but I'm wondering whether they are any more use that a graphics tablet.
