Things Get More Touchy at Lenovo

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Things get more touchy at Lenovo. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Those cool touch screens that have helped to make the iPhone so popular are showing up on more and more computers as well. Lenovo is out with the new ThinkPad X200 Tablet....with a multitouch screen. But beyond that...Lenovo segment manager Mika Majapuro says ...four finger touch is also available on the new ThinkPad T400s notebook....

"The beauty really is that you have all kinds of users, engineers and architects, for example who now can do very complicated gestures . They can rotate, zoom in and zoom out. They can really make things happen now faster and more easily and do things that normally were not possible before touchscreens."

And with the launch of Windows 7 next month Lenovo will introduce SimpleTap...allowing control of volume and other functions...using the touch screens. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
