French company Stantum, a developer of multi-touch technology reportedly announced that its Slate PC demonstration platform has been certified by Microsoft (News - Alert) as “Compatible with Windows 7.”


 
The certification was achieved for up to 10 simultaneous touch points that allow users and developers to leverage the advantages of Stantum’s multi-touch technology.
 
According to Stantum CEO Etienne Paillard, “This is good news for existing and future Stantum licensees. Our pioneering experience, added to a long-term collaboration with Microsoft, has enabled this native multi-touch support since the first beta versions of Windows 7.”

“Having the official logo now paves the way for OEMs considering our unique multi-touch technology for their future Windows 7-compliant products,” Paillard said.
 
The Slate PC demonstration platform includes a 10.1 inch touch screen and provides various benefits of Stantum’s multi-touch technology like 10 or more simultaneous cursor points, finger and stylus input, finger-pressure detection, low power consumption and native Windows 7 support with no driver.

Based on the Dell (News - Alert) Inspiron Mini netbook platform, the offering features a multi-touch display screen instead of a keyboard and includes various operations including typing, handwriting, gestures and classic cursor control input via the multi-touch screen.
