Video: Lenovo SimpleTap Touch for Thinkpads

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 8 comments

This Tablet wants you to touch it all over.

Yesterday we heard from Lenovo about its ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC and ThinkPad T400s laptop, both of which feature multitouch screens that support up to four fingers, meaning that you'll be able to do a whole lot more than just poke at stuff.

While Windows 7 with the Touch Pack will be able to support touch-sensitive applications better than ever, Lenovo is also introducing bringing with it its own SimpleTap software that uses touch to control certain system settings, such as volume, and launch shortcuts by just touching an on-screen tile.

Lenovo has posted a video demonstrating SimpleTap – check it out below:

What do you think? Could this be the push that multitouch needs on PCs?

    As he says, it would be more useful when running a tablet pc since hotkeys are hidden. I like even if i may never use it.
