Laptop Makers Shy Away From Multitouch Technology


Multitouch may be a better suited for convertible PCs that transform from a notebook to a tablet PC when the screen is rotated.

"If you put a notebook in a slate mode, you are talking about a platform that is more gesture friendly than the clamshell," says Moore.

Fujitsu plans to introduce multitouch into some of its 12-inch screen notebooks in the middle of next year when it hopes the technology will be a little more mature, says Moore. But the company is still betting it will be convertibles and tablets featuring multitouch that will find greater adoption among users, rather than traditional notebooks.
