  • How the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors.
  • The behind the scenes details on the new app model that allows developers to create powerful new apps. All while retaining the ability to use their existing apps.
  • How Web-connected and web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript have native access to the power of the PC. 
  • How Touch-optimized browsing, with the full power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10 transforms your experiences with the web.
