Full blown apps


Today's picture shows Flash 8 Professional running on the UMPC - full blown apps on a handheld device - how cool is that? (Sorry Ian, still rubbing it in! ;-)) For those of you with really keen eyes, the last post also showed a full blown app too - doesn't Word look different for v. 2007? I've signed up for beta testing of Office 07. First impressions - I really like the ribbon instead of the toolbars - it is surprisingly intuitive!

How do you find the speed of the full blown apps? What about that awful 'Screen Real Estate'?

The spped of the app is fine, but any rendering is going to take time.

The screen is rescaled, but it is a handheld device, so I would expect to compromise in some way. You might have to keep opening and closing panels to work, but a small compromise on the grand scale of things, really. Haven't tried it with DV yet.
