By the looks of that intro (looked like porcelain cats on a stand in his kitchen in the reflection) that is one MAJOR glossy screen. That alone makes this a FAIL. Matte screen or nothing when it comes to tablets. I cant imagine trying to use that SOB outside...you'd go BLIND! :(

if microsoft ever got its act together and actually made a skin/interface/mode that worked well with tablets while still remaining windows it would easily beat out any of the mobile phone oses that they are sticking on tablets currently. Until then however the simple fact that the windows interface is designed to work optimally with a mouse and keyboard (and dont get me wrong, at a desk nothing will ever beat that) and the sheer power required to run it (i5 for example) currently doom it to a niche even more than the glossy screen.

And it being a massive 12 inches doesnt help
