Windows 8.1… More for tablets.

Another Windows 8.1 news πŸ™‚


In this case, it is at the Computex show (Taipei, in Taiwan).

So We learn that the start screen (“Modern UI”) will work better in portrait mode. The coming Microsoft applications will also work in portrait and landscape mode.

Let us add to the menu a better detection at the level of touch-sensitive screens and a better optimization of the numeric keyboard for the small-sized screens.

If we cross it with a Microsoft Office Suite adapted to less than 10 inches screens… We see mini tablets of 7 or 8 inches coming πŸ˜‰


The continuation looks interesting πŸ˜‰
