ASUS today launched the Eee PC T91MT, the first convertible tablet netbook to feature a multi-touch screen that supports Windows 7 Multi-Touch gestures.
Particularly handy for students and professionals who need to take notes and make one-to-one presentations on a frequent basis, the slim and light Eee PC T91MT - which measures one-inch thick and weighs a mere 0.96kg - reproduces handwriting and allows users to perform tasks intuitively with just their fingers. The Eee PC T91MT's multi-touch capabilities are further enhanced by a comprehensive suite of touch-optimized software that comes preinstalled. Designed for mobility, the Eee PC T91MT sports a shockproof 32GB Solid State Drive (SSD) and comes with an additional 500GB of online ASUS WebStorage.
The Eee PC T91MT's tablet form factor and multi-touch screen avail it to many uses. In slate form, it functions as an e-reader. In netbook mode, the Eee PC T91MT serves as a tool for discussions, as the screen can be swiveled to accommodate multiple users, as well as accept concurrent touch input from more than one source.
With its support for Windows 7 Multi-Touch gestures, virtually every task can be performed with a tap, drag, pinch or flick. Games can be controlled in a much more interactive way, and pages of documents can be flipped with fingers?just as they would be with a real book. Adding to the fun is a suite of touch-optimized applications known as TouchSuite. TouchSuite allows users to perform many tasks with their fingertips, including editing photos with FotoFun, taking notes with NotePad and scribbling handwritten reminders with Memos.
Equipped with a 256-level pressure sensor, the Eee PC T91MT's 8.9" multi-touch screen reproduces handwriting, regardless of whether a finger or the bundled stylus is used.
Built to withstand the rigors of day-to-day use, it is equipped with a 32GB SSD. It also comes with an extra 500GB of online ASUS WebStorage which allows users to access, share and back up their files and media no matter where they are, through a drag-and-drop web-based interface.
