Acer Detachable Touchpad / Trackpad

Acer has introduced some new multimedia laptops, which we normally woulnd’t cover, but they come  with an intersting feature I haven’t seen before:   They have a removable touchpad that one can use as a touchscreen remote control.

The Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G and 5951G are big, expensive laptop, but I think the removable touchpad/remote concept is so cool that it might be useful in Acer’s netbooks as well.

There’s a orientation sensor built into the touchpad, allowing you to hold it in landscape or portrait orientation. The remote has on-screen buttons for controlling media playback including what appear to be play and pause buttons and icons you can tap to bring up on-screen menus and other features.
