Microsoft One Ups Apple With On Screen Multi-Touch
Video: Multi-Touch in Windows 7
Vista Team Blog: “Tonight, at this year’s D:All Things Digital conference, Julie Larson-Green showed Walt Mossberg how a few of the multi-touch innovations first previewed in Surface will ultimately enhance the next version of Windows.”
Apple wooed audiences when it first demonstrated multi-touch via a track pad built into Apple laptops, but Microsoft has now one upped Apple by bringing the hands on experience of the Microsoft Surface to the small screen. The new tech will be standard as part of Windows 7, although the hardware specs required to support it haven’t been disclosed yet, or whether this could be built into a standard laptop as well.
