LCD-screen, multi-touch trackpad.

The Register has a peek at an upcoming Small, Cheap Computer™ from Sharp called the Mebius. It’s pretty much the usual netbook fayre… except for the inclusion of a reasonably large, multi-touch trackpad which is also an LCD screen. The video of it that the Reg show just depicts it being used for doodling but there’s a ton of potential for such a component. I hope this is something we see other manufacturers pick up on.

Just a shame that the Mebius looks like it won’t be all that cheap, like a lot of the more recent netbooks…
