Illustration for article titled Dells New Latitude XT Tablet to Have Multi-Touch Technology

Just in case you missed it, at Oracle OpenWorld 2007, Dell demonstrated the multi-touch capability of their new Latitude XT tablet PC. Users will be able to use multiple fingers to draw lines or manage several images simultaneously. Kevin Kettler, Dell's chief technology officer, noted that "it's going to be a great avenue for creative applications to be developed around it." Dell plans on shipping the system sometime in the next few months. [ComputerWorld]

@HexiumVII: This is not really a difference between Apple and Windows(Microsoft), this is mainly a difference between Apple and other computer manufacturers. The problem with tablets is that while they're awesome, they don't seem to enjoy a great deal of success. My guess is Apple is afraid they'll lose a great deal of money on them as they'll be more expensive for the tech, and lots of people might see a tablet as useless (might...heh, will).
