We've had the opportunity to review a few tablet / netbook combinations here at HotHardware (the Eee PC T91 from Asus immediately comes to mind), but in the 10+ years of covering computing technology, there has yet to be a tablet as polarizing, alluring, and promising as iPad. And after all of these years, who would've thought that it would be Apple leading the tablet charge of 2010? Early last decade, somewhere around 2003 or 2004, there was a huge push for tablet PCs to make it big. That's a long time ago, for sure, but we recall it feeling a little bit like the netbook push of 2008. Companies... Read more...

Much like Donkey Kong, "it's on." The tablet wars are now fully in effect, and with Apple laying down the first blow, HP has followed up just a few days later with a gorgeous teaser video that makes it difficult to wait. As we all know by know, the multi-touch tablet will have a lot of things the iPad doesn't: a USB port, Flash support and a camera, for starters. It won't have the App Store nor will have Apple's unique user interface, and despite their best efforts, we sort of doubt that HP will be able to get people lined up 3 days in advance at the local Best Buy for an HP Slate. That said, HP... Read more...
Desktop replacement notebooks aren't as popular as they once were, but the big boys still have a place in the laptop world. A really, really big place. iBUYPOWER has just revealed what might be the most noticeable notebook of the year so far, not only because of the great specifications list, but the sheer size of this unit.The Battalion Touch CZ-11 differs from most monsters, as it has some smarts to go along with the muscle. The main standout is the 1080p multi-touch trackpad, making it one of the first (and only) multi-touch gaming machines in existance. It also includes a Core i7 processor,... Read more...

Touchscreen computing still has a long ways to go before it's popular in the mainstream, but if anyone can help, it's Asus. This company basically started the netbook craze that's still going on now, and they have just announced their latest in the famous Eee PC, which just so happens to feature a multi-touch panel that swivels around and becomes a tablet PC.The Eee PC T101MT is the first Eee PC Touch device to go multi-touch, and it ships with Windows 7, a 10.1" display, PenWrite technology that enables note-taking and doodling, unique Touch software to take advantage of the screen and an additional...

Take a step back and inhale. Nexus One owners have just become the first group of Android users to get a taste of native multi-touch here in the United States, and it has definitely been a long time coming. Android has proven itself as one of the most capable mobile operating systems on the market, but the lack of multi-touch really hindered its ability to go toe-to-toe with webOS and iPhone OS.Google announced this week that Nexus One users will begin to receive an over-the-air software update on their phones, and while it's still unclear when other Android 2.0+ phones will receive the same update,...

With a claim of “nearly 30-years of touch innovation” under its belt, HP is no stranger to touch-input technology. The company has recently integrated touch input into a number of its consumer and business product lines, such as tablets and displays and perhaps is most well-known for its line of TouchSmart all-in-one desktop PCs. In fact, when the TouchSmart first debuted in 2007, it was one of very first multi-touch desktop PCs to hit the market, though touch technology has come a long way since then, especially with the advent of Windows 7's touch capabilities.Taking advantage of a good thing...

Dell's Studio 17 has been around for well over a year now, so it's certainly due for an update. Aside from the off-hand processor bump, however, we haven't come to expect much in the wake of refreshes on lower-end machines. Out of nowhere, Dell's Studio 17--a decidedly mid-range 17" notebook for the company--has gained optional multi-touch support. Yeah, multi-touch. The same stuff that was found on the $2000 T400s Multi-Touch edition that we reviewed earlier in the year.N-trig, a company known for its DuoSense solution combining pen and capacitive multi-touch in a single device, has been chosen...

The MOTO Development Group has just released what may be the coolest thing to hit a casino floor in decades. The group is calling its new Multi-Touch BlackJack table a "world's first," and gamers will soon be able to experience it at the Global Gaming Expo 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. As of now, the prototype table can run BlackJack and Texas Hold 'Em, and honestly, those two are really the only games you need when you're playing for chips.The team took an atypical approach to creating this; instead of embedding individual screens in a standard size blackjack table, this concept creates a "seamless...

With the release of Windows 7, a whole lot of talk surrounding multi-touch has surfaced. In fact, most credit Microsoft's own Surface as the catalyst for more consumer-oriented multi-touch applications, and now it's a relatively unknown outfit take the next big step. Ideum, a company you've probably never heard of, is looking to make a name for itself by introducing what could be called the next Surface. The currently unnamed device--which is being called an "ultra-wide screen multitouch table exhibit exploring the electromagnetic spectrum"--is based around the company's MT-50 multi-touch, multi-user...

With Windows 7 out, we're apt to see a whole lot more Dell machines shipping with multi-touch capabilities. One of the best attributes to Win7 is its ability to natively interact with multi-touch applications and hardware, but even before that, Dell was dabbling in the technology with some of its notebooks.Now, the company is mixing two niche product groups together in order to get this: the Latitude XT2 XFR. Hailed as the industry's smallest 12.1" rugged convertible tablet PC with a multi-touch display, this little guy is one tough cookie. It's small and thin--not much larger than some netbooks,...
