The Eee PC Touch can be used like the iPhone, with finger gestures, but there's no Multitouch support.

Large icons ease selection of applications.
As with other tablet PCs, the screen typically can be turned.
Unfortunately, Asus uses a reflective display.
Asus offers the Eee PC Touch with 10- and 9-inch displays.
The keyboard of the 10-inch model offers better ergonomics than the 9-inch variation because of the larger gaps between the keys.
The Eee PC Touch runs Windows XP Home. The touch surface is activated by depressing the silver key at the lower left of the display's frame.
Asus integrates touch into the Notepad application to allow fast input with a finger.
Both models come with a white body.
Asus intends to deliver the 9-inch model in May, with the 10-incher following at a later date. Pricing has not yet been disclosed.
