HP TouchSmart tx2 Review – A multi-touch-based tablet PC
HP (Hewlett-Packard) has come up with the release of world’s first consumer-oriented convertible notebook PC with multi-touch technology. Dubbed as HP TouchSmart tx2, the newest multi-touch Tablet PC comes integrated with the BrightView (LED-backlit) swivel display, 12.1-inch diagonal WXGA (1280 x 800) HP’s TouchSmart technology and HP MediaSmart software, built-in with ultra-powerful computing with Tablet PC capabilities and entertainment sports in an eye-catching, sleek and light weight design.
Ted Clark, senior VP and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP, was quoted as saying: “Breezing through websites and enjoying photos or video at the tap, whisk or flick of a finger is an entirely new way to enjoy digital content on a notebook PC. With the introduction of the TouchSmart tx2, HP is providing users an easier, more natural way to interact with their PCs, and furthering touch innovation.”
HP TouchSmart TX2’s capacitive multi-touch technology allows specific set of gestures:
PINCH – Touch an object on the display once to opt for the item then put two fingers on opposite corners of the object, and then start moving them closer as one to reduce the object’s size or to zoom out. Move fingers away from one another to make the object bigger or to zoom in.
FLICK – Scroll or pan within an application either horizontally or vertically. For instance, in MediaSmart Photo, flick your finger to the left on the display and the inertia from your flick will shift the photos leftward, as if you have pushed a piece of paper to the left on a table.
ROTATE – Rotate photos by touching the object once to choose the item, utilize two fingers on opposite corners of the image and rotate the image either clockwise or counter-clockwise.
LAUNCH MEDIASMART – Touch the screen with two fingers together and write the letter m on the display to launch the MediaSmart Smart Menu.
SINGLE, DOUBLE TAP – Choose objects by touching them once (single tap), or double tap to open objects/programs.
PRESS & DRAG – Touch an object on the display and hold and drag it to the preferred destination.
ARC – enables users to shift tracks to/from playlists without making a straight line.
According to HP, “The convertible design with a twist hinge allows consumers to enjoy the TouchSmart in three modes: PC, display and tablet. With a rechargeable digital ink pen, users can turn the tx2 into a tablet PC to write, sketch, draw, take notes or graph right onto the screen – and then automatically convert handwriting into typed text.”
