Flybook has announced their newest notebook in the line. This 8.9inch little notebook sports a 1.2Ghz Intel Core Duo processor, a webcam, and expansion slots for 3G and HDSPA compatibility. Not to mention this thing is a touch screen tablet PC which makes it ever more useful as a mobile notebook. Unfortunately, Flybook has taken away the trackpad and replaced it with analog stick style cursor control. As we can see in the photo, this notebook is Windows Vista compatible. We aren't quite sure if it will have the ability to rotate the screen and such, but considering it's a tablet notebook, I think it's safe to assume so. This ultra small touchscreen notebook will be released at a $2200-$2500 price point, and it should be release sometime soon although there is no exact word.
This ultra portable laptop can be exactly what many people are looking for in a laptop. The tablet PC touch screen control is also always a bonus for buyers looking for a portable laptop.
