Multitouch resistive touchscreen display on an Eee PC 901 – Video

mt 901

The only Asus netbook that the company builds with a multitouch display is the Asus Eee PC T91MT… and as far as I know, that model hasn’t begun shipping yet. But display maker EELY is showing of an Asus Eee PC 901 netbook that’s been outfitted with an 8.9 inch, resistive multitouch display at FPD 2009 in Japan.

Netbooked got a chance to check out the display in person and shot a brief video which you can check out after the break.

The display is available with either a glossy or anti-glare finish. The company is producing the display for PCs, PDAs, phones, and other devices. I wouldn’t read too much into the fact that EELY was showing off an Asus netbook with the display this week. Companies tend to do their own computer hacking at events like these in order to demonstrate their technologies — it doesn’t mean that Asus plans to launch a touchscreen version of a netbook that has already been pretty much discontinued.

    Even if it was going to be a product, I'd never want to use a resistive touchscreen like that. You'd be jabbing your screen all day, rather than just touching it.

    Having used a Treo and an iPhone, I know the difference.
