Acer prepping ultra-thin with touchscreen keyboard and glass lid?

March 8, 2010 at 2:10 pm

cer prepping ultra-thin with touchscreen keyboardAcer is getting ready to launch a new type of ultra-thin notebook that promises to be one of the thinnest around. It will feature a frameless display and touchscreen keyboard. The lid will be made from the back of the display panel’s glass substrate according to Digitimes.

Doesn’t sound too safe to us, but apparently the company is planning on using Corning’s reinforced glass substrate and print a colour on the back allowing it to be used as a traditional lid found in normal notebooks. The move is being made to reduce thickness and material costs. If this thing ever comes to fruition it is rumoured to launch in H2 2010.
