Ballmer plugs Win7 as an OS for all devices

Recommended Posts

Ballmer Plugs Windows 7 as an OS for All Mike Angiulo, a Microsoft general manager, showed off several upcoming Windows 7 PCs with unusual designs. One of them, from Acer, had two large touch-screens connected together like a notebook. Touching all 10 fingers on the bottom screen turned that screen into a virtual keyboard for typing.

He also showed a Samsung laptop with a screen that can slide closed over the top of the keyboard. When the device is closed the screen faces out so it can be used as a tablet. And he showed an Asus tablet PC that has a separate wireless keyboard and a particularly bright screen that he said is easy to view from almost any angle.

All the PCs were running Windows 7 and will be available in the next few months, Ballmer said. "They're on the leading edge of new devices that offer it all," he said.

Ballmer also announced a couple of new features and updates coming to Xbox and Windows Phone 7.
