Asus has unveiled what it claims to be the world's first multi-touch netbook called the Eee PC T91MT. The convertible tablet netbook has an 8.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 that supports multi touch. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium and the netbook runs an Intel Atom Z520 CPU.
Other features include 1GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD for local storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 0.3MP webcam. The battery is a li-polymer unit good for five hours per charge. The multi touch technology allows the user to browse the computer and zoom in or out with gestures like pinch and more.
Document pages can be flipped with a finger swipe and the machine ships with a touch-optimized app called TouchSuite. The machine will sell for $999, and since the announcement was from Australia, I presume that is in AUD meaning it will be cheaper when it tips up stateside.
