UI Centric, world's leading user interface company, announced the details and first images of their upcoming tablet computing interface for Windows 7 devices codenamed "Macallan".
"Macallan user interface (UI) is designed from scratch specifically for tablet/slate form-factor devices. As a purpose built tablet UI it isn't an adaptation of a desktop or mobile phone operating system UI. It aims to offer most intuitive and responsive user experience of any tablet device.
Major benefits over other tablet device user interfaces include: Native multitasking, Adobe Flash support, USB and memory card support, and Camera and video chat functionality.
Macallan will be available under a licensing model to hardware manufacturers targeting Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 7 Embedded Compact. As a comprehensive "off-the-shelf" solution, it'll empower manufacturers to easily and affordably offer a next gen multi-touch user experience. The first device from a major manufacturer's to run Macallan will debut in Q3 2010.
