Always Innovating is set to release a new convertible slate aimed at changing the way we view both netbooks and tablet computers. The Touch Book has the features of a netbook: 10 to 15 hour battery life, low cost and small size, but the interface of a slate computer with a completely detachable keyboard. The Touch Book starts at $299 for slate only configurations or $399 for slate plus keyboard and is poised to dramatically change our view of netbooks.
The Always Innovating Touch Book fills the needs of a netbook and slate in one device. The platform is entirely open source, including hardware, which works well for consumer use and custom platforms like home theater interfaces. Follow our coverage of the Touch Book on TabletPCReview.com.
