When is an iPad not an iPad?

When is an iPad not an iPad?

When it's a notepad. A PixelPad has all the design grace of the iPad but is about as low tech as you can get. And it's so much cheaper. For $24 you get a 64-page pad (printed with vegetable inks), 3 pens and a refill-pad. And while it's designed for web designers (hence the 10-pixel grid) I think most of us would appreciate the clean design. Looks like Andrew, the designer, should have jumped on the iPad name a little sooner!

Every iPad PixelPad comes sketch-ready right out of the box with your favorite writing instruments: The famous Sharpie Fine Point Permanent Marker, the Pilot VBALL .05 Rolling Ball black ink pen and the Bic Bicmatic .07 graphite lead mechanical pencil with Comfort Grip.

PixelPads are printed using a stochastic method which means you'll see extremely fine grid lines and incredibly sharp, photorealistic details without any ugly dot patterns. But we didn't stop there. PixelPads are printed with environmentally friendly low or no VOC vegetable-based inks.
