HP to bring iPhone style touchscreens to market in 18 months

Hewlett-Packard has said they plan on bringing haptic touchscreens to consumers in early 2010. “We’re focused on recognizing the potential of touch now. We see touch as the almost preferred method for nontechnical users” Phil McKinney, chief technology officer, Personal Systems Group, HP.

Speculation is that touchscreen technology market penetration will double by 2013. I would also wager that productivity will increase significantly when these devices hit the market. Coudos to HP for making the commitment.
