From what I've read about CES it seems like a big upcoming trend in hardware is touch enabled laptops. And of course Microsoft's Surface device is sort of a touch enabled laptop.
This is a whole new world for UX minded people coming at us fast, and it has the potential to fragment with multiple incompatible conventions emerging.
Microsoft provides guidelines specifically for Windows 8, but what about a web sites/apps intended to be for a wide range of devices? We can essentially ignore the new capabilities offered by hybrid (touch + keyboard) devices but that would likely decrease one's relevance, just as ignoring touch-only would. With touch + keyboard (and + trackpad?) it behoves us to use each input channel for what it's best at and not simply follow the previously established conventions that assume either touch-only or keyboard-without-touch.
Does anyone know of resources to look to for guidance in this area?
