Hewlett-Packard is considering a range of new technologies for the next version of its popular 2133 Mini-Note netbook, including touchscreens.

“When we send out the Mini-Note to education it always comes back with a lot of finger prints on the screen,” said Phil Devlin, manager of product marketing at HP's mobile business unit in the Asia Pacific, during a recent interview. That tells him people are looking for touchscreen technology.

Netbooks, or mini-laptops, are a new breed of device designed for mobility and surfing the Internet. They normally weigh about 1 kilogram, have 7-inch to 10-inch LCD screens, carry long lasting batteries and connect wirelessly to the Internet. And they generally cost less than the average notebook PC at between US$199 and $599.
