Sharp's Latest Mebius PC-NJ70A Netbook Sports LCD Trackpad Besides The 10.1-inch Display

We’re getting bored from all those repeatable specs, coming out time after time, featuring a 10.1-inch 1,024 x 600 display, 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB HDD, WiFi, Bluetooth, multi-card reader and 3 USB ports inside every single netbook we hear about. But the new Mebius PC-NJ70A is no different from the others, actually it packs exactly the same elements we’re already fed up with, only this time Sharp had shown some creativity all over the place, by adding a small integrated 854 x 480 LCD (equipped with a light sensor) right into the trackpad, allowing people to use it as an alternative screen for tweaks, adjustments and some other interface managements, which consistently demand second screen, and while there’s no official announcement concerning availability, you’ll have to settle with the rumors around the websphere, claiming this innovative device will cost around  ¥80,000 ($817) across the Japanese market.

Update1: Checkout the video after the break.

Update2: Looks like the Sharp Mebius NJ70A is up for pre-order at Dynamism for a staggering price of $999, while ship date is set to June 5th.

Update3: The guys at UMPCFever have managed to get their hands over Sharp’s new Mebius and kindly shared the unboxing video, which can be watched after the break. You can also hit their link for more images.
