Summary OF Microsoft’s CES 2011 KeyNote

It is hot news that Windows PCs can be soon obtained along with the crazy-cool dual touch screen Acer Iconica laptop, The alternative for a keyboard is a second display that is touch sensitive. Touch it with all the 10 fingers and lo, it opens the on-screen keyboard! Also the latest Samsung PC 7 sliding series laptop [looking like a monster Hiptop], was also exhibited. It runs a fanless Oaktail processor, along with a trio of Micro connectors adding the Micro SD, Micro HDMI and the Micro USB.

A tablet from Acer was also displayed along with finger input, which includes a capacitative pen to use with Microsoft’s Ink. Its unique feature is that it differentiates between the pen and your palm and does not record the palm touches while you are writing with the pen. It contains 4 elements of display [touch input, pen input, display and glass] combined to lessen wastage of light, thereby bringing about a larger viewing angle and sufficient brightness.

Since there is less air between the layers, the display needs only 20% of the lighting power for any brightness as against all other touch screens. News is also that Windows 8 will be coming to System-on-chips [SoC]based on x86 and Arm. Also, a build of Windows 8 [which contained a native interface] which ran on Intel Quantcomm Snapdragon and Texas Instrument OMAP SoCs the size of a matchbox, was released.
