Windows 7 Tablet Takes On iPad

Ealier this year during January’s Consumer Electronics Show, Microsoft and its hardware partners pushed hard the idea of Windows 7 tablets.  Some were on schedule for a first half of 2010 release but have yet to see the light of day.  With HP deciding to concentrate much of its efforts on a WebOS tablet, it seemed hope was lost for a formidable Windows 7 Tablet.  The video above shows a Windows 7 tablet put through its paces against the iPad from web surfing, to YouTube, email, and more.  All in all, it seems to make that 4:3 aspect ratio work (which should be nice for video), everything seems fast to load, and its touch sensitivity keeps up nicely.  That keyboard, though, looks dreadfully narrow, packed with far too many keys (tab, shift & caps lock, ctrl, alt).

What do you think?  Impressed?  Share your take in the comments.
