    On the plus side, I just happened to notice this in a demo. This is from the Ativ Tab, which is ARM / Windows RT based:

    You'll notice down at the bottom right, the handwriting recognition option is still available. That doesn't necessarily mean that Windows RT has support for a digitizer, but it seems like a good sign that eventually an OEM will make a device with one.

    The T902 is build with Windows 8 in mind: it has 16:9 screen, Windows Start button, 10-point multitouch with flat bezel. In some european countries it will be available only after october 26...

    agreed, T902 should be on the list of options. I'd say it is more built with Windows 8 in mind for reasons mentioned above, and it has a new ivy bridge CPU inside, so its definitely "next gen".

    I like the 'flat bezel' criterion, seems fair. Any more recent flat-bezeled penabled options out there?

    I agree. The t902 is clearly design for Windows 8, is brand new, new iCore, 16:9, etc. It's not just Windows 8 "ready".... it's made specifically FOR windows 8. I'd put it on the list. It would be nice if you did so. This thread is a great little resource, and I'ld love for it to be "complete."

    I really appreciate the idea you had to make this thread, and that you're updating the first post. That's cool! Just wanted to say thanks.

    It's up there already, I appreciate the suggestions. I'll add the processor choices in a minute.
