Acer working on frameless laptop, touchscreen keyboard

By on

RUMOUR MILL: Apple’s war against keys might have another ally, though it might be taking it a bit too far. Acer is rumoured to be working on a frameless laptop that will have a touchscreen keyboard, allowing to make the laptop in an ultra-thin form-factor while reducing material costs. This rumour, however, is from Digitimes, so I would take it with a pinch of salt; but the idea isn’t farfetch then it sounds. According to Engadget, Fujitsu is working on a similar concept, while ASUS is working on a dual-display laptop prototype with a touchscreen keyboard.

According to Digitimes, it will be out in the second half of 2010.
