Microsoft Demos Windows Platform for Tablets, Touch and Mobility at COMPUTEX


In his first COMPUTEX keynote address as head of Microsoft?s OEM Division, Corporate Vice President Nick Parker hosted a lineup of new tablets and PCs from manufacturers as well as smartphones, servers and embedded industry devices.

"We want to be the best partner to all hardware manufacturers, from the way we engage and invest on new product designs to the experience we jointly deliver to customers," Parker said. "This new wave of Windows devices from our partners, combined with our software, apps and services, reflects that commitment."

Most notable of the devices Parker showed were the new 7-inch and 8-inch Windows tablets: the Acer Iconia W3 that launched on June 3 in Taipei, and three other small tablets from top original device manufacturer (ODM) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners expected to ship for the holiday season. These small tablets provide a Windows experience with Office Home & Student 2013. Some of the other hardware showcased included fourth generation Intel Core processors, high-definition displays, rotating touch panels, near-field communications (NFC) for file sharing between devices and ultrathin notebooks.

Tami Reller, chief financial officer and chief marketing officer of Microsoft?s Windows Division, joined Parker onstage to discuss the Windows 8.1 upcoming update.

"Windows 8.1 furthers the bold vision of Windows 8 by responding to customer feedback and adding new features and functionality that advance the touch experience and mobile computing's potential," Reller said.

Reller announced that Outlook 2013 RT will be available on Windows-based ARM tablets with the Windows 8.1 update later this year. "Windows on ARM is a core part of our strategy today and moving forward, and the addition of Outlook further enriches this world of new on-the-go opportunities for partners and customers," Reller said.

Reller was joined onstage by Antoine Leblond, corporate vice president of Windows Program Management, who shared the first public demo of Windows 8.1, highlighting enhancements in key areas such as personalization, search, the apps and Windows Store experience, cloud connectivity, and the new Internet Explorer 11.

Later, Steve Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Microsoft?s Developer Platform Evangelism group, took the stage to discuss the growing universe of Windows 8 apps. He talked about how the Windows ecosystem provides symmetry for app builders across client, device, server and cloud, and showed an array of popular apps for consumers and business including "Temple Run: Brave," Twitter, Foursquare, LINE, Adobe Illustrator and more.

Parker closed the Microsoft keynote address by showcasing devices and demonstrated how the Windows platform and services work across screens:

Park demonstrated the recently announced Nokia Lumia 925, which features advanced lens technology and next-generation imaging software to capture clearer, pictures and video, including better low-light images.

Office 365 and Office 2013 applications were demonstrated across Windows devices, using touch capabilities that enable rich productivity scenarios.

Finally he showased the recently annuounced Western Digital Sentinel server, which is based on Windows Server 2012 and supports access to cloud services across devices.
