A netbook that makes you go “ooooh”

Posted by : admin

Sharp have recently announced their new “Mebius NJ70A” netbooks. Due for realease in late May, the specifications of the netbook are pretty standard, making use of the Intel Atom N270 (1.60GHz), 1GB RAM,  a 10.1 inch display and a 160 gb mechanical hard disk.

The thing that really sets this netbook apart from the rest, however, is the use of a photodetector liquid crystal, which is basically a mouse with a display. This quite frankly looks awesome, a bit like having your very own Nintendo DS on your netbook, but with multi-touch!

The applications that use the touchpad seem rather like novelties (things like pianos and a bowling game) than practical uses that really take advantage of the touchscreen, yet if the price is right (estimated at around $800) this will be a highly desirable selling point for avid netbookers.
