The majority of these devices are multi-touch enabled, creating a user expectation that displays of all sizes will be interactive and have the common “iPad:registered:” multi-touch experience of swipes, pinches, and rotates. On the PC front, the touch capability of Windows 7:registered: and pending release of the multi-touch features of Windows 8 reinforces the need for the multi-touch experience to be present on laptops, “All in Ones”, PC desktops and larger displays as well.
