Stantum Slate PCStantum’s Slate PC may be just a concept device right now, but that hasn’t stopped the company showing off its multi-touch resistive panel. The Stantum Slate PC is basically a keyboard-less Dell Mini 10. Netbooked managed to get a demonstration of the technology behind the Slate. Initial impressions pointed to a sensitive and responsive panel.

It supports 10 points on the screen i.e. all ten fingers, which is demoed on the video. They even show how sensitive the screen is by using it with a paintbrush! A number of gestures and swipes are also supported. There’s no release date for this but hopefully we’ll see one of these panels in a tablet netbook soon. Check out the video after the break.

Multi-touch Resistive DisplaysYou don’t normally associate resistive displays as being multi-touch capable, however this new breed of display is incoming and was showcased by a couple of companies at the Flat Panel Display 2009 show. Taiwanese company EELY-ECW had an 8.9-inch screen stuck into an Asus Eee PC 901 and AUO had an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) panel on display.

Both screens were reported to be responsive and worked with a stylus too (something that capacitive displays are not capable of). Netbooked managed to get a demo of both displays and you can check out a video demonstration of both after the cut. Read more
