The CES 2009 will officially start on January 8th, which is less than 2 weeks away. Netbooks will be of course a very hot topic at the CES 2009. The new generation of netbooks will add touch and will have twistable screens to use them in tablet or notebook style.
As reported two weeks ago Intel is set to introduce a new Classmate netbook with a twistable screen and touchscreen at the CES 2009. Back in October we already reported that Asus is planning to introduce touchscreen Asus Eee netbooks early 2009. Asus is exhibiting at the CES unveiled pre-show that takes place already on January 6th. Expect the Asus Eee Touch to be already unveiled then.Gigabyte has outrun all of them with the Intel Atom powered M912V (photo) that has been on the market already for a while. See this M812V review we featured back in September. I hope Asus, Acer, MSI, Samsung and the other netbook vendors bring more innovation to the netbooks than just adding touch to netbooks. I expect an UI that is also made for touch and not just a shell with 6 large icons to push as desktop.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
