Tablet PC and Ink-Enabled Application Development




Subject:  The topic of this session will introduce the Tablet PC platform, including the API, software designed specifically for the Tablet, and different types of form factors now available. Central to the Tablet PC platform is Digital Ink, a vector based graphic format that leverages the stylus input. The topic will cover Tablet PC Specific Controls made available by the SDK and how to ink-enable existing applications, as well as UI considerations for this new form factor. Finally, we'll talk about the future of Tablet PC technologies, including the Origami/UMPC projects and digital ink in WPF (Avalon)
