Touch Book: the magnetic touchscreen tablet netbook

By andy

Here’s an interesting soon-to-be-manufactured device from Always Innovating. It’s a netbook that features a rotatable and detachable touchscreen, making it a pretty versatile unit both on the move and at home.

Featuring an ARM OMAP3 processor from Texas Instruments, it uses a lot less energy than a standard system and, coupled with its two batteries (one in each section) it could offer up to 15 hours of use from a single charge.

It features a 1,024 x 600 resolution 8.9-inch screen with an easy-to-use 3D user interface, has accelerometer, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, six USBs, and uses 8GB micro SD cards for storage.

The screen portion is magnetic, so you could stick it to the fridge or other metal surface, and it runs on open source software.

It all comes in at US$399, too, which isn’t at all bad for something that sounds so versatile. The first batch is going to be limited, so if you’re interested you’d better get over to the web site and pre-order now. It’s going to be available from early summer this year.
