This is the first challenger to the Wacom Cintiq although it is only 17″ and I am not sure about the resolution of the tablet (the LCD resolution is 1280×1024). Here is an info page from Hong Kong:

This is all very new and it has just been advertised on export sites but it shouldn’t be long before individuals can get their hands on them. The price, if you buy at least 10 from the exporter, is US$585 which is reasonable but I still like the idea of building my own.

UPDATE:
The tablet resolution is 2000lpi according to these specs:
