Even more surprising, is that they were not all fart apps!
There's a healthy spread of different types of apps, but as iOS and Android owners know, you shouldn't confuse quantity for quality. This does suggest though that Microsoft may be starting to gain the big 'Mo', especially with Windows / WinPhone 8 launches this autumn.
See the source for a very thorough analysis.
Here's my pick.
These resemble Asus' first gen ultrabooks, the Zenbooks, but with a novel twist, shut the cover and it's got another touchscreen on the outside! They come with Ivy Bridge i7 processors and 1080p displays in 11" and 13" flavours. Also really good for games of Battleships...
Asus 610 and 800
Think Asus Transformer Prime, but now running Windows 8, and not Android. The 610 runs on an ARM processor, whilst the 800 runs on an Intel Medfield processor. Both are 11.6" hybrids with 1366x768 displays and 2GB memory and all the other usual frippery.
The stations are:
Virgin hope to launch wifi services at a further 40 stations by the end of the year.
Stars are likely to start knocking each other out of position, and we might lose our Sun in the process as the two galaxies merge to create a new one.
You've been warned!
The upshot is that 34,000 households will not be able to get faster fibre optic broadband as a consequence of this aesthetic choice.
Will allow users to control their Xbox 360 remotely. Will be available cross platform on multiple operating systems including Windows, Windows Phone, Android and iOS.
Applications will be accessible through the tablet. Such as Youtube/Netflix/Vemo ect.
Live streaming ability through the tablet to the TV, desktop, lap top and other devices.
Microsoft have tried to steer away from other OS's, so more Xbox control and also available on rival OS's is potentially big news, but could make Xbox's more desirable than other console platforms.
There is some confusion still as to the exact design which has finally been approved as a rival sim by Motorola / RIM had identical specifications, but with a knob on top. Either way, these new nano-sims will be becoming more and more prevalent, but will also be backwards compatible.
