Our very own Stephen Toub, technical editor of MSDN Magazine, has just published a major article on developing applications for the Tablet PC / UMPC (Ultra-Mobile PC) platform. The article, Microsoft Sudoku: Optimizing UMPC Applications for Touch and Ink, uses the incredibly popular number-puzzle game Sudoku to demonstrate how to enable applications for Touch and Ink.  The resulting application - Microsoft Sudoku - will be released as part of the Touch Pack software package, included on all UMPC devices.

As an added bonus, the complete source code and Sudoku application are available for download here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/6/7/0678a19e-59e9-407d-8326-bbea26b26fb5/SudokuSourceCodeSample.exe.  Give it a try - it's addictive :-)

 

Enjoy,
