On paper the Mebius NJ70A from Sharp looks just like any other Netbook on the market. Its basically your average 10.1″ Netbook with an Atom N270 CPU, Intel 945GSE Express Chipset, 1024×600 display, 160GB Harddrive, and a web cam. However, Sharp is adding something that you wouldn’t normally expect on a traditional netbook, a 4 inch optical sensor LCD with LED backlight and a 854×480 resolution.
While the Netbook itself is pretty standard, its LCD multitouch trackpad has caused quite a buzz in the mobile world. The new screen works just like any regular track pad in that it allows you to control cursor but is much more interactive. You use either your finger or a stylus to write memos, e-mails, and short messages with handwriting recognition, play piano, zoom in and out of documents, watch video, and much more. As of now this Netbook is expected to ship during the month of June and will be available for purchase in Japan.
