Microsoft shows off tablet computer


Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer showed off a new tablet-style computer from Hewlett-Packard during his CES keynote recently. The HP Slate has multitouch capability and can do some gaming. “Tablet-style computers that run Windows have been available for a decade, but HP’s machine is bound to draw extra attention, thanks to expectations that Apple will launch a similar device this month,” NZ Herald News wrote. The slate –one-piece portable computer without a physical keyboard– will be available “later this year.”
