" With Windows 7 we have enriched the Windows experience with touch, making touch a first-class way to interact with your PC alongside the mouse and keyboard. We focused on common activities and refined them thoughtfully with touch in mind. You will have the freedom of direct interaction, like being able to reach out and slowly scroll a web page then flick quickly to move through it. With new touch optimized applications from creative software developers you will be able to immerse yourself as you explore you photos, browse the globe, or go after bad guys in your favorite games.

Will Apple Sue?

T91 and T101 don't support multitouch, man!

this could help a desktop OS like Windows inside a pocketable device compete with the iPhones/Palm Pre's of the world.

unfortunately as of right now XP/Vista *plus* joysticks/stylus's/scrollbars suck when being truly mobile & needing quick access.

UMPC screens are too small to enjoy multi fingers!

Will we be able to use the single point gestures on existing touch screens like the Aigo 8880 or Viliv S5?

Galileo said...

Yes, you can use gestures, tested on Willcom D4

I would love to have multi-touch on-screen keyboard. Look no to need to fold back my hp tx2500 while drawing and taking notes is just awesome in class.

Is it possible to add a touch screen to the HP Mini netbook, or could it depend on which model?
