New features for Windows 7 include recognition of mathematical formulas and East Asian languages, as well as the addition of a soft keyboard with multitouch and a totally revamped method for correcting handwriting. Here's hoping we finally get a droolworthy, sleek, and most importantly, useful tablet to take advantage of the new features. [MSDN, thanks JagsLive]

Tablet PCs rock. I own the Toshiba Portege M200 and I never even use the keyboard. Handwriting and voice recognition are way cool.

I can't believe tablet PCs haven't already taken over the world. Must be their ridiculously high prices. Hopefully this will improve with Windows 7.
