UrbanMax is a mobile computer prototype measuring just 1 inch thick, looking like a tablet PC but with a sliding keyboard and a 11.1-inch touch-sensitive wide display that tilts up to a laptop screen level.
It will feature the N-trig's DuoSense digitizer technology, characterized by a battery-free pen, 0 pressure capacitive touch, multi-touch functionality, and low power consumption.

"N-trig's DuoSense technology allows OEMs and ODMs to produce innovative new mobile and wireless computing devices that are not currently available on the market today," said Amihai Ben-David, CEO of N-trig. "We are excited to be collaborating with Intel and other Tier 1 players who are recognizing our breakthrough and innovative technology."

The touch and pen digitizer is located in front of any size LCD display, and is thin, lightweight and transparent, supporting Windows XP Tablet and Windows Vista operating systems support, with on-board upgradeable firmware. N-trig created the battery-free electrostatic stylus providing the power source from the magnetic energy produced by the excitation coil located in the digitizer, while the user can access the tablet either using finger touch or this stylus. The surface is a capacitive sensing system featuring fast response time, drag and drop, scroll, flicks and select.

The precise input is accomplished using palm rejection capability, which differentiates between unwanted contact and intentional input.
You can also use multiple fingers to manipulate files, thanks to the multi-touch support, which allows for zooming, panning, rotate and double-tap via the Hands-on Gestures technology.
This is the information we have at the moment about the Intel UrbanMax high-end tablet and we can conclude that when it’ll be available on the market it will be the top model of its kind featuring the latest computer technology.
