Good grief. First, there is a spoiler in this thread. But most sadly, some of you folks are finding sometime to be "frustrated" about. What practical loss are you getting from the latency? I think it a lot of ways the latency is a good thing on a touch screen device. You can certainly noticing it when dragging an icon across the screen but so what? Why does the icon need to be right under your finger all the them? What have you lost by it not tracking you exactly? You're not moving a phyiscal object around, you're controling something, the delay can give an human time to make changes or to know that you don't want to lift your figure off because that icon might get the deleted if you do. Explain what is so critical here that you need 1ms latency? People have been able to make beautiful and amazing drawing on the iPad, so exactly what do you gain? This is just MS trying to dig themselves out of the hole they are in the tablet world. People will always find a reason to be unhappy with stuff.
