In the world of UMPC there are few that can hold court like my mate James Kendrick. Normally we only get an audio when we tune into the "jkOn TheRun" podcast; this time however we're gifted with a videocast. The show has absolutely appealed to my highly visual nature!
So what will you see? James has gone to marvelous length to actually show you the Tablet Kiosk eo UMPC available in Australia performing under normal everyday working conditions. I rate this video as a must see if you're looking at purchasing, or have purchased, a UMPC device, especially the "eo."
What I love most about this videocast is that the "eo" is in James' hands long enough for us to witness some of the UMPC idiosyncrasies, therefore giving us a strong indication of how we would work through the learning-curve that is undoubtedly going to occur with UMPC.
Interesting points in the video:
- Watch translucent keyboard in action.
- Watch James switch between UMPC resolution i.e. from native 800x480 and all the way up to 1024x768.
- Watch James interact with the Microsoft TouchPak and with traditional Windows XP by merely minimizing.
- Watch James rest his palm on the screen and write, using the stylus, at the same time (wow).
