With Windows 8 set to be released this October 26th, a whole new generation of touch-capable PCs are slowly making their way on store shelves touting to be running on the new OS from Microsoft. The trend is not only to be touch-capable, but to come in a tablet form factor. From this, you’d expect PCs to be smaller than 14 inches – which is the common screen size for notebook PCs.
Sony, thinks otherwise though. Behold the Sony VAIO Tap 20. Yes, that “20” means 20 inches of touch-capable screen real estate. Check out the video below:
