Yes, I've been hard at work trying to get Vista RC2 fully functional on the Q1 UMPC. Vista on its own is quite stable; it's the little Samsung and touchscreen nuances that took some effort. So how does it work? What's the performance like? Obviously, I can't show every Vista feature in a short video, so here's a walkthrough of some features:
- Vista startup with sound and touchscreen (with some workarounds)
- Quick overview of the system tray icons
- Screen calibration
- Native TIP and the floating tip
- Vista search and Start
- New York Times Reader
- Windows Journal
- Windows Media Center for audio, games and video
- The new iTunes interface is very slick and usable
- Audio quality of the movies is very good
- Windows Mobile Device Center and PDANet; didn't work this time...that's the nature of doing a video I guess! ;)
- Speech Recognition demo
- Standby and Resume time
- Oops! I almost forgot the Screen Rotation and Screen Resolution switcher!
Please note: This video is in WMV format so it will not show up nor play in iTunes. You will have to use another podcatcher or download the show direct to view.
