Latitude XT Multi Touch

Dell this afternoon revealed that it will give its Latitude XT convertible tablet multi-touch support as of Tuesday. The software patch from the company's support site will let the XT's capacitive touchscreen work with several programs in Windows XP and Vista. Owners can zoom in and out using a pinch motion in most web browsers, Windows' built-in photo viewing utilities, Google Earth, and Microsoft Office; a two-finger scroll will also permit scrolling without having to use the mouse.

The move is meant to expand the appeal of the Latitude outside of its traditional professional audience and also confirms that multi-touch support in Windows can come ahead of Windows 7, which should have inherent support for multi-touch across most if not all of its interface when it appears in 2010.
