Audio InkShow: An interview with Darin Fish

When you want to know the pulse on the Tablet PC and Ultra Mobile PC industry, there is one person at Microsoft to talk to: Darin Fish.


Darin is the Director of Business Development for the Mobile and Tailored Platforms Division at Microsoft, which includes Tablet PC and Ultra Mobile PC / Origami. He has been with Microsoft for 22 years, 4 1/2 of which has been spent working with the Tablet PC team. Darin was on the Tablet PC team for about a year before launch and has been on the team since. Darin’s team manages the relationship with OEM, ODM, IHV, and ISV Partners. If it has to do with hardware or software for Tablet PCs and Origami devices, Darin and his team have their hands in it.

If you are at all interested in Tablet PCs, Vista, Tablet PC marketing, the future of the Tablet PC and devices to come, and some new technology called ““Hot Start”, then you need to listen to this Audio InkShow.

Watch for our next Software InkShow to be launched this week on Vista and the TIP experience.
