Desktops and Notebooks: Lenovo Adds Multitouch Features to Its ThinkPad X200, T400s Notebooks
On Sept. 15, Lenovo began detailing the new multitouch capabilities of its ThinkPad X200 tablet PC and its ThinkPad T400s laptop. The multitouch screens of both machines are the work of Lenovo engineers and the manufacturers that make the displays. In addition, Lenovo is looking to take advantage of some of the features of Microsoft's Windows 7 OS with a new application called Simple Tap. This technology lets users create shortcuts on the screen that can help turn the laptops off or quickly launch an application. The new multitouch ThinkPad X200 and T400s go on sale in September, and Simple Tap is available for download Oct. 22.
