Windows tablets are finally here, and Ollie Bray is impressed by the Acer W510 from RM
I have to admit to being one of the people who was looking forward to the release of Microsoft’s Windows 8 and I had an early release version running on an old laptop long before its official launch in October 2012. However, during my early testing I didn’t really ‘get’ Windows 8 and spent nearly all my time in desktop mode rather than using the 'metro', modern user interface.
I quickly concluded that one of the reasons for this might be because my laptop didn’t have a touchscreen and there is now no doubt about it in my mind – Windows 8 is designed for touch. And it gets a thumbs-up.
