ASUS planning multitouch T91 with Windows 7 [Video]

Back in January at CES, ASUS’ Eee PC T91 was announced as part of the company’s push for multitouch netbooks.  As the months have passed, and the T91 itself reached the hands of reviewers, the fact that it has a single-touch, resistive panel is obvious.  Over at Computex, though, ASUS have been demonstrating a T91 with a capacitive multitouch-capable panel.

The multitouch T91 runs Windows 7, which has native support for the technology.  According to Johannes from this will be a new feature for the next wave of T91’s shipped with Windows 7 as standard; we’ve heard no separate confirmation of that from ASUS themselves.

As well as an 8.9-inch touchscreen, the T91 has an Intel Atom Z520 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD.  There’s also the usual range of WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and ports; it’s available in select markets now, priced at around £449 ($684).
