Mid 2013: Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC supports 10-finger, guesture, multiple-user & 2 hr battery life.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/17

In the past you have seen my interest in multi-touch Windows devices (for instance the Dell’s S2340T 23″ Multi-touch monitor and Microsoft Surface 2.0).

This year a I expect vendors to deliver Windows 8 based computers that resemble a lot of the Microsoft PixelSense (formerly “Microsoft Surface”) technology:

  • 10 or more finger touch
  • guesture support
  • multi-user
  • capability to see more than just fingers (i.e. tags, or mobile controllers)

Lenovo seems the first to announce, with an expected availability in June 2013: IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, with support for 10-finger, guesture, multiple-user, and two-hour battery life.

Some notes on multi-touch and Windows

While fooling around with Microsoft Surface, you are astonished with the number of fingers it supports: 10 is no problem on the Samsung SUR40 which can also do full HD resolution (more specs here).

Not so with the standard Windows 7 touch support: that has only 2.

As I want to increase that to better mimic the development environment to the actual environment a few notes:
