Sharp Mebius NJ70 netbook replaces touchpad with touchscreen
While its guts are the same old netbook standard, Sharp's new Mebius NJ70A
(named after an ancient Shinto calculus demon) puts a slick little 4-inch LCD touchscreen in place of the typically chintzy touchpad. Amusingly, the little touchscreen, which can accept both touch and pen input, has a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels—nearly the same as the screens of most netbooks.
If I sound dismissive, it's only because I'm sure the price will be prohibitive. Nonetheless, good on Sharp for doing something potentially useful to spruce up an otherwise drab netbook scene.
