Microsoft believes in Tablet

The life of Tablet PCs and UMPCs have not been easy. Like any idea ahead of time we have seen many problems coming from implementations that still do not have a full hardware support. Like the UMPC resolutions at 800x480. Yes, everybody knew that that was not enough but to have a good price they had to compromise this and use a display that was designed for a completely different activity. To have a display with more resolution for that new category of devices (UMPC) would have taken time and would have cost a lot more. And the whole idea behind was to have a device with a price lower than 500 dollars.  But anyway… The reason that I’m bringing this is because while some pages spend time looking at the errors we have Bill Gate saying:

"Microsoft has a lot of different tablet projects that we're pursuing. We think that work with the pen that Microsoft pioneered will become a mainstream for students. It can give you a device that you can not only read, but also create documents at the same time."

A really good news for people like me that still believe in the concept TabletPC/UMPC. Keep going Bill, that I’m with you.
