Following the lessons from the first Touch Book, we upgraded the original Touch Book with more CPU power, better battery management, new keyboard features, a capacitive touchscreen and a built-in webcam. The Touch Book remains a dual device, that can be used both as a netbook or a tablet, thanks to its detachable keyboard.
Linux and the open source community have made tremendous progress to offer an innovative and user-friendly desktop experience. The Touch Book is picking up this trend and comes with an optimized home-made Linux-based OS. And the good news is that we have added Android, Google Chrome and Ubuntu to the device.
And with the overclocked TI chip, it can run as fast as you want, especially with the video and 3D acceleration available on the chipset: still no-fan and noise-free, you're getting the best available, in only 3 pounds.
The Touch Book is now built with a capacitive touchscreen, allowing a multi-touch experience.
Your screen is now incredibly responsive to your fingers, and as the multi-touch support is natively part of the operating system, once again, it's open source.
Enhanced video capabilities
Standard configuration now comes with a front-end webcam, so that you can get the most of videoconferencing thanks to Skype and Gmail call.
We also added a video out port: with a simple HDMI cable, send your desktop to your TV.
Innovating battery management
Learning from our past experience with the Touch Book, we have now a much more efficient battery management.
And thanks to a new design of battery circuitry, the Touch Book offers a never-seen-before battery-life experience, with the ability to transfer energy from one battery to another.
Bluetooth detachable keyboard
That's a fact, we believe in usability, efficiency, and optimization. What does it mean for a simple keyboard? That it can simply be connected to any computer thanks to its bluetooth capabilities. It obviously can still be plugged in the Touch Book tablet, and can also be plugged to any other computer with a USB cable.
