At CES 2010, we take a look at some highlights from the Microsoft keynote.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Here is the new HD2, which will be available through T-mobile. Sharper, brighter, and richer screen technologies really do make a difference. >> We will have a lot more to say about phones next month at Mobile World Congress. But what I want to do is just highlight for you, new form factors that are coming this year, in what we will call Slate PCs. Here are three different Slate TV, form factors. This one comes from Pegatron. Bigger. This one comes from Archos, is running a video as it happens right now. And this one comes from Hewlett-Packard. We're talking about something that's almost as portable as a phone, and as powerful as a PC running Window 7. The emerging category of PCs really should take advantage of the touch and mobility and capabilities of Window 7, and are perfect, perfect for reading, for surfing the web, and for taking entertainment on the go. Our OEM partners are doing some great work with slate PCs that'll be rolling into the marketplace this year. I showed you these three examples. Maybe, I'll just drill down a little bit on this example from Hewlett-Packard. This is sort of a prototype of a coming HP, slate PC, that'll be here this year. It's a beautiful, little, little product. I can now tell all of you that Project Natal will be available this holiday, 2010. Now, I think the creative director for Project Natal summed it up best when he said, when something like Project Natal comes along, it rips up your rulebook and throws it away. And you've got a big, white, sheet of paper. I want you all to just imagine what will be conceived ten years, five years, even one year from now to cover those sheets of white paper. It is the best of our imagination, created in software, completely at your service. >> Thank you very much. ^M00:02:22 [ Applause ]
