Lenovo’s now offering multi-touch displays on the ThinkPad T400s and X200t tablet. Multitouch displays allow users to manipulate maps, multiple items and 3D objects.
The X200t can recognize two fingers at a time and the T400s can recognize four fingers at a time.
The touch-enabled ThinkPads will ship with Simple Tap, an application that allows users to change screen brightness, volume and other settings with their fingers.
The ThinkPad T400s is a 14″ thin-and-light notebook. It’s highly unusually to find a touchscreen display on a clam shell style notebook, but I expect this feature to become common since Microsoft is supporting multitouch in Windows 7.
