  • CEATEC 2010: A Look At Fujitsu's Windows 7 Tablet Prototypes

    Straight from the unicorn department: what you can see on these pictures are two tablet concepts Fujitsu is currently showing at CEATEC 2010 in Japan.

  • Onkyo Announces Three Windows 7 Tablets For Japan

  • Review: Nav9 Windows 7 Tablet


    Short version: It’s a Windows 7 Tablet, and if that makes you laugh derisively, then the product isn’t for you.

  • Dell's Convertible Netbook-Tablet Actually Looks Really Cool

    I have to hand it Dell for this one. That design is killer, even if it’s running Windows 7 on an Atom. Sure, it looks incredibly breakable, and it’ll never be as sleek as a dedicated tablet, but damn, that’s a great way to do a convertible. Read More

In part it’s Apple’s dedication to user experience; but I’d argue that the larger factor in their success is Apple’s end-to-end control of the product. Read More

  • Windows 7 Tablet Interface Got You Down? Try FrontFace

    Windows 7 is a great tablet platform, but it’s just not as sexy as Android, or the iPad.

In fact, German developer Mirabyte has been working on a rather promising looking interface. Check out the video after the jump: Read More

  • Microsoft Begins MGS Mobile Gaming Studio Presumably For Windows 7 Phone Games

    And now it looks like Microsoft is getting into the mobile video game “space.” Redmond has posted on its careers Web site that it is looking for people to staff its new MGS Mobile Gaming studio.

  • Windows 7 Now More Popular Than Vista (But XP Still King)

As it stands, 14.46 percent of Internet users are using Windows 7, compared to 14.34 percent for Windows Vista.
