Windows 8 and the Tablet PC

Much has been written that the problem with the Tablet PC is it is based on an OS which relies primarily on input via keyboard and mouse, as opposed to touch like, say, iOS.

Speculation is that Microsoft will demo at the D9 Conference next week the tablet UI for Windows 8, which (supposedly) is based more on the touch Windows Phone 7 than the keyboard/mouse Windows 7.

The redoubtable Rob Bushway posted his expectations (hopes) of what Microsoft will demonstrate. In short (as I read it), the base of the new OS is Windows Phone 7, not Windows 7  and inking as well as touch is well integrated.

I hope so. We’ll see soon.
