Latitude XT panel to power other portables
So, you likey that Latitude XT, eh? I've got to say, it's a pretty attractive machine, especially since Dell announced it will be getting multitouch capabilities next year via a software update. But if that $2500 price tag is a bit too rich for your blood, you might want to hold on and see what other manufacturers are cooking up using the same technology. Gizmodo recently spoke with N-Trig, the company behind the DuoSense technology that allows the XT's screen to operate as both a multitouch screen and a stylus-input device and discovered that Dell is only "the first of many leading manufacturers" planning to use the technology in their notebooks and portable devices. Apple Tablet, anyone?
