A company called Always Innovating launched today at the DEMO 09 conference the Touch Book, a netbook that also works as a tablet, as it has a touchscreen (not yet known, if it will be multi-touch) that can be highlighted on your keyboard.
Its processor based on ARM technology, a Texas Instruments OMAP3 600MHz. With that, the machine, which runs the Open Embedded Linux platform (aka “Touch Book OS”, but it is also capable of running Windows CE, Google Android, Ubuntu, etc.), can render OpenGL 3D graphics, allowing the execution of games such as those of iPhones / iPods touch.
The screen resolution is 1024 × 600 pixels and the machine has 256MB of RAM, an 8GB microSD card, Wi-Fi 802.11b / g / n, Bluetooth, accelerometer, six USB 2.0 ports (three internal, two external and one mini ), speaker, microphone and headphones input and a battery with an average autonomy of 10 to 15 hours.
Always Innovating claims to sell the Touch Book for $ 300, just for the tablet, or $ 400, if one also wants the keyboard + dock. These three together weigh less than a kilo, which is pretty impressive.
