UI Centric announces their new interface for Windows 7 Tablets
UI Centric which is an interface designing company, recently announced the details of their upcoming User Interface for Windows 7 Tablets codenamed Macallan. This interface is being developed keeping in mind all the aspects of the Tablet/Slate PC, for a complete experience on the tablets powered by Windows 7 which are slated to be launched later this year.
The screen-shots look refreshing and they say that they will be built from scratch. Adapting a full fledged Desktop Operating System like Windows 7 on a Tablet is not an easy thing to do, but using this Macallan interface will be a completely different experience altogether.
By the looks of the screenshots with a flip page like interface for multitasking it looks to be quite a promising one.
Major benefits over other tablet device user interfaces, being touted, include:
Adobe Flash support
USB and memory card support
Camera and video chat functionality
Macallan will be available under a licensing model to hardware manufacturers targeting Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 7 Embedded Compact. As a comprehensive “off-the-shelf” solution, it will empower manufacturers to offer a next generation multi-touch user experience.
The release dates according to the press release is Q3 of 2010 .
