Fresh from showing off its TouchSmart 2 all-in-one device, HP has now dropped word that we can expect to see some multi-touch laptops from the company as well. That none-too-surprising bit of news comes straight from HP's Kevin Frost, general manager of the consumer notebook division, who says that we can expect the laptops to show up "long before" the launch of multi-touch-friendly Windows 7 OS (supposedly on track for a 2010 release). Somewhat interestingly, HP technical marketing manager Kevin Wentzel adds that the one of the bigger obstacles at the moment is in developing suitable software, not hardware, for laptops.
