thats why I say it looks like MS chased apple 50 miles down a 2 mile road.
Phone, Tablet, Touch screen/Presentation displays, Touch Computers (selling fairly well mind you), Laptops (soon), Convertible laptops (turn into tablet), Point of Sale Machines (huge market), ATM's, Kiosks... I could go on and on..
Heck.. even new monitors for your desktop will be touch enabled starting this holiday season and a lot will be ultra thin that rotate down to use as a touch table type display.
Touch, Voice & Gesture is making a big play.. Its a large enough market that it has made apple a 500 billion dollar company
