Noahpad spotted at CommunicAsia

It's not often that we see an interesting non-mobile phone-related device at CommunicAsia, but at the Garmin booth, where the Nuvifone was showcased, we spied a unique UMPC.

The Noahpad was used as a device to showcase Garmin's navigation software, but our eyes kept straying to the keyboard. Resembling two large buttons, the touch-sensitive panels allowed typing and doubled as a touchpad as well. However, the lack of tactile feedback made using the keyboard harder than even the smaller keypad on the ASUS Eee PC. (Get more CommunicAsia 2008 coverage here.)
