You can now pre-order a multi-touch slate PC from RM for (only) £399.
So will this beat the iPad? I don’t think so.
The point (surely) is that it the way the user uses the device that makes it good, if you can’t use it then the best device in the world is redundant. I have used Windows 7 on the iPda (via TeamViewer – a remote desktop application) and it just feels horrible. It’s the tactile nature of the interface that makes the iPad good not the electronics underneath.
Mind you … I’ve been wrong before …..
