The Always Innovating Touch Book is finally going into production. It’s turning a lot of heads with one fantastic new feature – the ability to detach the touch display from the keyboard for use as a tablet.
The display is an 8.9-inch pressure sensitive tablet with a magnetic back. The accompanying keyboard is 95% of full size, and together, the Touch Book acts like your average netbook.
Space is a definite downside, with a mere 8 GB from the SD card. The CPU is the OMAP3530, an ARM chip by Texas Instruments. The netbook has 256 MB of RAM and 256 MG of NAND memory.
Bonus features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 3D accelerometer and three USB ports for netbook accessories.
Pricing is the same as previously announced – $300 for the tablet alone or $400 for the whole deal. The Touch Book is a tad weaker than most netbooks, but if you’re looking for an all-around awesome gadget to impress your friends, it might just be the device for you.
