    Page-turning 'Macallan' UI will hit a Windows 7 tablet this year (video) -- Engadget

    There's not much to your average prototype Windows 7 tablet -- just a netbook running the vanilla OS with a touchscreen instead of keyboard -- but if you've been wondering why you might care to buy one, just get a load of this Macallan UI. Developed by a third-party firm named UI Centric specifically for Windows tablet devices, it features a clean, finger-friendly interface capable of Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight, and uses the crowd-pleasing page flip gesture for multitasking functionality. Perhaps most importantly, however, UI Centric claims it will actually appear on a real slate -- come Q3 2010, a "major manufacturer" will debut the first Macallan-topped device. We're curious to see how it (and a bottle of fine scotch) will stack up against September's ExoPC.

    i thought apple had a patent on page turning in a UI, but i guess that might be related to their ebooks only and not the UI.

    still very interesting, and def want to see the specs and design deets from the ' Major Manufacturer ' when they become available.
