Haswell ultrabooks will need to have a touchscreen

DigiTimes reports Intel is making touchscreens a requirement for all Haswell-platform ultrabooks. Vendors that do not comply with this requirements will not qualify for subsidies on the processors.
The sources believe the strategy will help accelerate the penetration of touchscreen notebooks, but some players are concerned that the adoption of touch panels will push consumers away due to pricing.

The sources also pointed out that a shortage of touch panels due to weak yields is the main obstacle delaying the standardization of touchscreen notebooks and they expect touchscreen notebooks to only account for 10-15% of total notebook shipments by the second half of 2013.
