Windows 7 Slate
During Microsoftâ€™s Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington DC today, CEOÂ Steve Ballmer announced that a lot Slates running Windows 7,Â will be coming later in the year to compete with ( though not specifically naming) the iPad and Android tablets. A little later on in Keynote, there was a short demo of the Hanvon Slate featuring an ebookÂ reader that looked pretty fast and fluid. They also demoed a very interactive video app that had social networking and search capabilities powered by Bing built in. As a teaser for what they may show tomorrow, they briefly demoed the movie app running on a WP7 phone!
Today was mainly focused on the enterprise while tomorrowâ€™s keynotes will touch more on the consumer side of things with Andy Lees who heads the mobile communication business taking center stage.Â Hopefully, we will witness never before seen demos of the Windows Phone 7Â OS andÂ Windows slates and get more information about the release dates. Below are videos of the the Hanvon SlateÂ and movie app demos. They are little grainy but you get the idea.
