Windows Touch coming to a PC soon
« on: March 30, 2009, 12:54:30 PM »

The multi-touch controls familiar to Apple iPhone users will be built-in to Microsoft's Windows 7.

Windows Touch will be a "first class way to interact with your PC alongside mouse and keyboard," said the firm.

Microsoft believes multi-touch PCs will become popular in retail, public spaces, on laptops and "kitchen PCs".

Some Windows machines already feature rudimentary touch input and Apple is also reportedly adding touch for displays in its Snow Leopard OS update.
