Asus showed off a demo of the touchscreen interface that will be used on the company’s upcoming Eee PC T91 and T101H touchscreen netbooks at a press event in Germany. And Johannes from Eee PC.de has captured the video and uploaded it to YouTube.
Asus showed what I believe was a shorter version of this video at CES, but it looks like the team has put a little more work into the demo. The video now runs about 5 minutes and shows a ton of different ways users will be able to interact with the computers using the touchscreen.
At the most basic level, you can use your finger or a stylus like a mouse and click anywhere on the screen. But Asus is also developing some touch-enabled applications like a custom program launcher and what looks like a desktop widget engine filled with little programs for showing the time, weather, and other information. The video also shows a custom, touch-enabled photo browser and editor, music and video players, a calendar and schedule application, and a utility for taking notes.
It appears you can also scroll through web pages by dragging the screen with a finger.
You can check out the full video after the break.
