If WP7 is any indication, their tablets will be big on eye candy and small on functionality.

if this is windows, just rethemed for a better tablet experience, it will be good. I need a tablet that can do school work on it, and so far none of them can access all the sites i need. If MS can pull that off, they will have a huge "in" for college peeps.

i dont think tablets in general are good for students... i think a laptop is much better for productivity and note taking.. also is it just me or do none of these screen shots actually look like wp7?

I LOVE MICROSOFT!!! They really do have the best and most innovative ideas. I still use my mac but am looking very forward to purchasing a windows computer next year.
