Office 2010 has built-in tools so you can start taking advantage of touch screens, including the new slate and tablet PCs. "Let me show you in this short video the new Ink Tools tab (in Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, and Word) and how OneNote works on slate or tablet computers with touch," revealed Microsoft's Doug Thomas.
The demonstration video involves a copy of Office 2010 running on top of the Windows 7 ASUS EP121 Slate.
Now, in all fairness, calling the Windows 7 ASUS EP121 Slate just a Table PC isn't exactly fair to the device. This is a fully-fledged mobile computer featuring a Core i5 processor, 4 GB of system memory, an Intel HD graphics card and a 64GB SSD.
Users running Office 2010 on the Win7 ASUS EP121 Slate should expect the productivity suite to behave much in the same manner as it does on their PC, with the added benefits of touch and pen, of course.
