HP Considering Touchscreens for Next Mini-Note

From PC World: Hewlett-Packard is considering a range of new technologies for the next version of its popular 2133 Mini-Note netbook, including touchscreens.

"When we send out the Mini-Note to education it always comes back with a lot of finger prints on the screen," said Phil Devlin, manager of product marketing at HP's mobile business unit in the Asia Pacific, during a recent interview. That tells him people are looking for touchscreen technology.

He was quick to point out that HP hasn't announced any new version of the Mini-Note or a plans for an update. Nothing has been decided for such a device.

But PC vendors always keep their eye on new technologies with an eye to what people want. The Mini-Note was designed in part for education, so finger prints on a screen is an important signal to HP in terms of possible future development.
