Windows 8 Tablet Hybrids Could Be Where Microsoft Really Shines In The Tablet World

Windows 8 Tablet Hybrids Could Be Where Microsoft Really Shines In The Tablet World | Windows 8 - CompuSpace | Scoop.it

The Windows 8 'People' App

The Windows 8 'People' App | Windows 8 - CompuSpace | Scoop.it

When I was briefed about the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Microsoft drove home one point repeatedly in a bid, I think, to curtail an obvious coming point of criticism: Many of the apps that are bundled with the Consumer Preview are nowhere near completion and are thus marked as App Previews. The new contacts management solution, called People, is one such App Preview. And in its current form, it's a good example of what they were worried about.
