Seems Panasonic has joined the multi-touch i Core Tablet game too: http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/02/panasonic-slips-core-i5-into-worlds-lightest-12-1-inch-toughb/ Specs are similar to the other 12.1" Tablets, though there is the facility to fit a second hot-swappable battery. Doesn't seem to have an in-built optical drive. Intrigued by the fact that they will be offering a 'gloved multi-touch' option in "Fall 2010". Does this signal a new multi-touch digitizer in the works?
