Meet the new Mobile PC Team (new Tablet PC features too!)

Download

Right click “Save as…”

Meet a large portion of the teams that make the Tablet PC and laptop/notebook features. We have a wide-ranging discussion from how to make battery life better (developers take note!) to new handwriting recognition features coming in Windows Vista.

We start out the meeting "is this the team that's about to get fired?" Hey, the Tablet PC team has its naysayers. Smiley

We're not one of them.

And be sure to subscribe the MobilePC team's blog. Full of goodness.

    The tablet isn't going anywhere!  "every lap top is going to be a Tablet PC".  I'm excited about the voice technology.
  • but noone uses voice tech ( at home anyway Tongue Out )

    i just wish they enhanced the hardware for tablet pc's

    my m200 is long in the tooth now. toshiba seems to develop for larger screens now!

    i'd love to get a speedy tablet pc with nice gfx Smiley

  • Robert,

    Please have your mgmt purchase a quality shotgun mic and attach it to your camera for sessions when you have large groups sitting across the room. I stopped watching this video because of the poor audio quality.

    Thanks,

  • Great stuff, all the new writing training is ace.  And the fact I should be able to upgrade my M200 to Windows Vista thanks to Tablet being included in Windows Vista itself.

    Of course it probably won't stop me from buying a Vista-generation Tablet as things are looking really good.

    Little concerened about how the Tablets with touch and digitisers will work, will you turn off the touch screen?  The coolest thing people mention when they see mine is you can actually write on the Tablet and rest your hand on the screen to do it so it's very natural.

    Keep up the great work guys!

    Tablet PC guy at the PDC said the M200 will probably not be able to run Vista, but the M400 will. It should be out by November or later I think.

    e: sorry about that. I didn't realize it was going to be a meeting like this before I got there. Certainly sub optimal. But on my speakers I just stayed close to the volume knob and it all worked out. Maybe you can help there too?
  • m400? out by this or next november?

    any leaked specs on this?

    Curiously, when the audio level is high - particularly at the beginning of the video - the sound is pretty distorted. Not sure if it's just the accoustics of the room or an encoding issue. When the level is quiet it sounds good, but quiet. The audio levels on all the channel9 videos are pretty low (try playing Spider Sol while you play the video to see what I mean). 

    I don't know what software you use to produce the videos but if it supports DX audio plugins you can get a compressor/limiter plugin that would equalise the levels a bit. A dynamic range compression of 5:1 ought to do it.
  • scobleizerscobleizer I'm the video guy
    I just use Windows MovieMaker. No special audio tricks used at all. I should start using a real encoding tool.
  • an external mic - even a cheap one - will do magic.

    don't think of the video-cam as "a video-cam" while you shoot. Think "How hard will it be for someone to here us", too.

    plus: too many people = bad data. There's no structure/real conversation = less valuable info.

    plusplus: the light-reflecting tablets are no seller. an app that needs you to write endlessly so it may/may_not learn what your handwriting actually means is something that reminds me of something called "Newton" 10 years ago. It is kind of scary to have a software that "reads" your emails so it can make a "profile" out of you. I know, agents are nothing new - but not really something everybody wants.

    Thanks.

    Great information on the tablet.  I really like these types of videos where you get to hear it straight from the folks working on them!  Tablet Man was great too, now if we could only get him on the input panel to show folks how to use tablets!

    That tank game upgraded for the Tablet looks cool. OMW to check that out. Big Smile

  • Hi:

    I'm interested in a contact within this group to discuss some of the education applications. I am the ed tech director at Forest Ridge School in Bellevue, and we are using tablets with our students.

    The education pack is great. I'm immediately curious if there is a "ink flash card" app for folks without the tablet to still be able to view and construct cards. Sort of a "Journal Viewer" app for flash cards for the non-tablet PC.

    We have other great ideas and expereinces using tablets. Please contact.
