I’m always on the look out for a good priced touchscreen controller that I can put my custom home automation software on. I found the CUWIN 3500 by Comfile Technolgy, Inc. and it seems like they have a product offering that may suit my needs. Priced at $600, the unit is feature rich:

– 7″ wide color TFT display
– 800 x 480 resolutions, 260K colors
– Touch panel
– SD card supports
– Ethernet supports
– RS232 x 2 / RS485 x 1 or RS232 x 3
– Speaker with Audio output
– Real time clock (Battery backup)
– Visual Basic, EVC supports
– USB I/F (active sync)
– Keyboard or Mouse supports
– ARM9 32bit 266MHz processor
– Windows CE 5.0
– Size(WDH) : 220 x 150 x 50mm

I still prefer the Nobu because it features Windows XP Embedded allowing my software to run without any modifications. Hopefully Comfile Technology has a Windows XP Embedded version coming soon!
