Peter Loforte, general manager of the Tablet PC team, shows us what is cool about the upcoming Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 software update (code-named "Lone Star.")
This is a free update and will automatically come with the upcoming Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Much more from the Tablet PC team will be coming up on Channel9.
This 10-minute video will give you a great idea of what working with a Tablet PC is like (and Peter talks a bit about developer opportunities on the Tablet PC as well).
The Tablet PC that Peter is using is a HP TC1100 that converts from a laptop-style configuration (which is how he's using it here) to a slate-style configuration. The keyboard detaches on this model. Some Tablet PCs have keyboards permanently attached that
"convert" from slate mode, to laptop mode. Others, like the NEC, are pure slates (they don't have keyboards attached at all, although you can always plug one in via a USB port).
