Sharp Mebius comes with LCD Trackpad

sharp-mebius-nj70a-netbook4It seems like only yesterday that I was discussing trackpad issues with the SmartTrack Neo. Actually, it was yesterday.

It would appear that Sharp has created a netbook with a trackpad like no other, as the Mebius PC-NJ70A trackpad is also an LCD. This four-inch screen has a resolution of 854 x 4850, and it can be used as a secondary display.

The LCD trackpad has a lot of cool things to do: like a paint program, a calculator, a piano keyboard, and a very interesting bowling game. As for the other features, the Mebius has 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, as well as a three USB ports, a multicard reader, and WiFi capabiltiy. The big (or should I say bigger?) screen is at 10.1 inches, with a resolution of 1024 x 600.

No doubt the Sharp Mebius is designed to compete with the rumor that Apple’s newest MacBook will come with a glass touchscreen. It doesn’t look like Apple is going to make that particular MacBook model, so Sharp stands to make a huge profit on this one.

There is no word on when this particular netbook will be released, but it is rumored to have a relatively high price at $817.
