Short rundown: Very responsive screen touchwise. With Windows 7 you can pretty much use it without the keyboard for almost any operation. Browsing is easy with zoom and a swipe gesture to navigate forward and backwards. Not as sturdy as the Fujitsu T5010. But as a hardcore Tablet PC user – the touch screen brings what tablets have been lacking before. For browsing, checking your mail, manage files, e-reading etc just use your finger and whenever you need to take a note in Onenote 2010 just take out you pen. Windows 7 is ofc a “must have” on every tablet and even more so on a unit with touch.
Battery life is about 6h – depending on Wifi, UMTS etc. The unit above runs with a extras battery in the modular bay instead of a DVD burner/player. A whole day of normal work is no problem.
First of all – this is no gaming laptop. It scores 3.4 in Win 7, with the GPU beeing it’s weakspot (ofc). There was no problem however streaming a full HD video over WiFi (it supports IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n), connected to our LCD TV using the HDMI out.
Fishbowl is a WPF desktop application that uses the Facebook stream APIs to allow access to Facebook in a clean and impressive UI. Fishbowl also includes Windows 7 only features, including taskbar notifications, jump-lists and taskbar previews. The interface fully supports multi-touch navigation too and image gestures to navigate and view your photos. Fishbowl was created by the UXLabs@Microsoft to showcase the Windows Platform.
Exploring photos might be the best thing, using touch gestures or flip through images with your mouse scroll-wheel. As a Tablet PC user you get full support (like in Win 7 overall).
Keep in mind, since it’s currently a trial version you won’t get any support
According to Microsoft, Fishbowl will also work on Windows XP and Windows Vista but i havent had the chance to try that yet (in the case of XP i never will lol!). But all of you allready installed windows 7 of course.. or?
It’s available for download by technology enthusiasts and Facebook power users from http://www.fishbowlclient.com/.
Maybe not such a big thing for thoose who have been evaluating and providing feedback on the Microsoft Office 2010 Technical Preview, but the Office 2010 beta is a big step forward even for us. My personal favourite is ofc OneNote 2010 as a tablet PC user.
Be sure to try it out!
