Sharp just introduced its latest netbook, the Mebius PC-NJ70A. It’s sports a 10.1″ TFT LCD with a 1024 x 600 pixel format and has all the other standard netbook features such as the requisite 1.6GHz Atom and 1GB of RAM. But this little netbook has something that no other netbook has: a touch LCD trackpad! The LCD has a lot of pixels too: 854 x 480! Quite interesting. I wonder how long the batteries last. The LCD trackpad does employ an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust brightness.
