The Always Innovating 'Touch Book' is expected to ship in late spring with a start price of $299. Advance orders for the netbook can be placed at the Always Innovating website.
Implications - The 'Touch Book' is the kind of product that may appeal to many consumers recovering from the economic downturn, primarily because of its versatility. "You can use it as a netbook computer, a hand-held game device, or a video player," said Gregoire Gentil, the founder of Always Innovating and Touch Book. Do not be surprised if the Touch Book takes off before you know it.
