One of the things I saw at CES 2009 in the Asus booth was the new touch screen Eee Top and Eee netbook models. I have to admit that while I see the use of a touchscreen on something like the all in one Eee Top, I was hard pressed to find a use for the tablet style Eee netbook.

The folks at Asus showed me a video that gave some idea of how it plans to make the touch screen easy to use. It places a semi-circular row of icon on the screen that you can rotate and touch to activate.

The icons give the user access to the different applications and sections of the operating system and allows for three apps or screens to be viewed at once. It's a slick little interface that reminded more than a little of Windows Vista Flip3D. Still, it might make the touch screen on the little netbook more useful.
