Samsung Intros No-Touch Touchscreen


Samsung, the company that tries to introduce a new product each and every minute of the day, now brings you the CX719TD 17 touchscreen LCD display. But don't actually touch it, you must use a stylus instead of your finger. That stylus stays charged up for three hours before it needs to be replenished. Samsung is quoting a contrast ratio of 700:1, and although it's a pretty nice-looking unit, you d better really like this touchscreen technology because you'll pay dearly for it: it's $920, about three times more than you'd pay for a run-of-the-mill 17-inch LCD flat panel. Ouch.
