Report: Acer Notebook to Use Touch Keyboard: "Acer reportedly plans to build a notebook that uses a full touchscreen keyboard, and plans to release it in the second half of 2010, according to a report from DigiTimes.
The notebook would even forego an external shell, using a tough LCD substrate from Corning and then printing directly on the back. The result? A truly ultrathin notebook that would put the Dell Adamo to shame.
With the iPad due to arrive in a month or so, the concept of a multitouch keyboard doesn't seem too far fetched, although touch typists would certainly have a difficult time keeping their fingers aligned. Still, if true, it might be a novel piece of technology, and one we'd certainly like to get our hands on.
