HP Does Touch Screen To Increase Sales

HP is turning to touch screen technology to try and boost their sales figure. HP is scheduled to introduce more touch screen laptop and netbook computers before years end. HP is hoping that touch screens will turn around a sluggish computer market and hopefully turn around what could be a slow holiday sales for new computer systems.

According to WSJ article it also states that:

H-P began promoting touch screens last year with a big-screen desktop computer called the TouchSmart. The Palo Alto, Calif., company introduced a revamped TouchSmart this year, with new software and a new external design and has recently ramped up its effort to market the computer.

The touch-sensitive screens allow PC users to move items around, surf the Web or open files with their fingertips, replacing functions normally performed by a mouse and keyboard.

If HP is successful with their touch screens, it may spur companies such as Dell to go with touch screens also. We have discussed this technology before with some liking it and other not going for the idea.

What do you think? Will there be a touch screen in your future?

Comments welcome.

    It’s not a Twitter killer unless it allows guys like me to signup who are responsible and yet under the age of 18. I have 3 invites. I can’t use or transfer any of them.

    Twitter might not do so well on the numbers, but boy, Twitter is more mainstream than JLo’s divorce!

      Bad comparison, no need to state the obvious but you probably got my point.

    In twitter you follow only people you realy like or find interesting couse otherwise your timeline gets too poluted. In Facebook and Google+ you can add every (fake) friend you want (or who wants to be added) and ignore them easily. Therefor Twitter is the place to be and Facebook and Google+ for the wannabe.

    You say the funniest things Chris. I reckon G+ has more chance of killing facebook, and that aint gonna happen. Twitter is far too different. When I read your tweets I don’t get tempted to look through the thousand replies to it, and I like that.

    Can’t we do better than the “killer” thing? This is soooo played out. Google is the Facebook killer, Facebook is the Google killer, content marketing is the seo killer. Come on…
