I am really excited about this release as it brings great technologies that will allow Specialized Devices manufacturers to compete with existing tablets and slates. Providing an enhanced support for Silverlight-like UX (using Silverlight for Windows Embedded runtime and tools) along with connectivity and enterprise features such as Exchange 2010 AirSync, PDF and office viewers, or Device Stage support, Windows Embedded Compact 7 allows manufacturers to benefit from already implemented features, giving them the opportunity to concentrate on innovating. While I look forward to see what they will come with, I am amazed by what they could already put together is so little time. look at this EEE Pad EP101TC. Obviously this is really early prototype but given the fact that Compact 7 is not even RTMed yet, I think this is really promising.
