Touch looks like its going to be the best way of interacting with Windows 8, the new Metro UI is designed for touch. I have tried Windows 8 on a desktop and Acer Netbook so I was very keen to try it on a touch screen device. Over the weekend I had some hands on time with a Acer Iconia Tab which is a capacitive touchscreen PC and is ideal for Windows 8.
The Tab’s multi-touch display works very well with Windows 8 and is much better than operating it with a mouse and keyboard.
In the video I try the new Start menu, swipe between applications and try the split on-screen keyboard. Overall I really like Windows 8 on a touchscreen, it works better than the mouse and keyboard for the Metro UI and it works on the Tab really well. Next to get the Windows 8 test will be my HP Tablet PC
Thanks to John for the load on the unit
