Windows 7 Tablet

Windows 7 was not designed for touch, but we will probably see a bunch of skinned Windows 7 versions for all the different tablets (almost like HTC Sense for Android and Windows Mobile 6.5). This will fragment the Windows 7 tablet market into a bunch of isolated platforms with small differences in screen resolution, aspect and capabilities that need to be queried and handled if an application is to utilize the hardware fully.

If I need to code for N different carrier/manufacturer specific platforms and app-stores I will not be supporting the platform. I am no fan of the iPad as a tool, as an accessory it’s great (stylish and pleasant to work with, but of almost no utility), but that’s the platform I would pick.
