Over recent years, space-saving design has become a mainstream trend. In line with this, Packard Bell has unveiled its oneTwo series, a new All-in-One PC (AIO), embedded with multi-touch capabilities.
The use of multi-touch technology is expected to rapidly expand because it provides a fast and intuitive interface for the user. This follows on the success of touch-screen smart phones. It is meant for non-computer literate people.
Packard Bell has introduced two different All-in-One solutions for users wanting a compact design and a new way to use technology.
Users can choose between two screen sizes, both offering touch-screen functionalities compliant with Windows 7, a mainstream 20’-inch HD display (1600×900 resolution) and an advanced full HD 23’-inch with a resolution of 1920×1080.
The touch-screen technology more closely replicates the familiar hands-on experience of everyday object manipulation, making the touch screen easier to use and more rewarding for people with little or no computer literacy.
Touch-screen technology provides a fast and intuitive interface and simplifies interactions. There is no need to know how to use a computer; users simply touch their monitor to make your choice.
Besides including all Windows 7 built-in touch functionalities, the oneTwo offers Packard Bell’s TouchPortal and Packard Bell TouchGadgets.
TouchPortal is the starting point for managing Packard Bell TouchGadgets and Microsoft touch applications. It is an intuitive virtual desktop for users to manage access and consume favourite media content easily and instantly and give easy access to Microsoft Touch Pack applications with a simple touch.
TouchGadgets includes TouchFriends to help keep in touch with friends online from Flickr and Facebook, browse, download or email photos to friends instantly.
PB TouchMusic enables users to launch the media player, to organise, browse, play and enjoy music, while they can use PB TouchMemo to open a note, hand-write/ draw a memo or set an alarm reminder.
Packard Bell’s TouchMediaShare takes advantage of touch controls to make photo management and sharing a seamless experience.
