Wonder if it will include blotches at no extra charge….December 19, 2008 at 10:33 pm #176583newstMember
Pre-adorned with fingerprints perhaps?December 19, 2008 at 11:24 pm #176584dougpMember
Well, several things – will it allow multitouch when Win7 comes out? That’s a pretty big thing. Also wondering about the type of screen, is it matte or glossy? I also wish they’d just offer us higher resolutions 🙁January 2, 2009 at 12:03 am #176591harrycMember
i’ve just noticed this on ebay, a solder less touchscreen specifically made for the sammy, i’m not sure that it disables the webcame but heres the link

OK, that looks pretty cool. The big question for me would be how does it affect battery life though…January 9, 2009 at 6:15 pm #176593MichMember
Is there anybody here that already installed one?January 10, 2009 at 6:17 pm #176595
Yesh I have one installed it a few days ago it been very useful so far. Not the easiest install as you have to take most of the sammy apart but its been pretty cool so far especially with web browsingJanuary 12, 2009 at 6:36 pm #176594MichMember
Is the touch screen changed the device appearance? I mean does the screen look different or something like that?January 13, 2009 at 11:24 am #176588JonBMember
..yes, and is there any noticeable bulging in the screen bezel (surround)? Does the lid close properly?January 13, 2009 at 3:18 pm #176596
No you actually remove some backing plates and replace them with these rubber shock absorbers which are not as deep so there is no bulging or any gaps, the ebay link has a link to the install instructions. The kit comes with a hubbing leaving you with two extra internal usb slots.
I installed windows 7 beta last night and it has been working very well with the touch screen windows 7 has some brilliant tablet features wich xphome edition did not have.January 13, 2009 at 10:07 pm #176587wuzhenninMember
so Reign-Mack you installed windows 7 AND the touch screen?January 13, 2009 at 11:14 pm #176599JackoMember
PDF Install guide can be found here
I would love to see a vid of this working 😉 I would be very interested in knowing if multi-touch will be supported by this panel. Have you tested any multi-touch software with it? More info required Reign-Mack!!January 14, 2009 at 4:24 pm #176585NcssryEvlMember
I did this on my EEE 701…I don’t know if I would do it again, but I will be watching this.January 15, 2009 at 12:13 pm #176597
so Reign-Mack you installed windows 7 AND the touch screen?
yes i have windows 7 beta and the touch screen installed the tablet features are fully suported with all the gestures, I will try to record this but i think any recordings with my phone cam will just be a blur.
I do not think this kit supports multi touch!
