I just wanted to say.. that omg thats a hideous picture!
Ok, now back on subject, i wish Microsoft luck! They are never very innovative, but if they succeed in being innovative this time, i can see some good stuff in their future.. But again, good luck!

I find the current devices from Motion Computing to be the most appealing, with both touch, and very precise stylus operation. They are very good performers running Windows 7 as well.
The problems these devices have is they are far more costly than an iPad, and their battery life is pretty limited in comparison. Other than that, they are full blown Windows 7 machines, with very usable touch and stylus functions, running in sleek tablet form.
It really depends upon what you need/want in a tablet device. I am a Windows 7 guy, but own, and extensively use, an iPad too. Both platforms work very well for me, in their respective applications.

Ah! My bad.
It's the HP Slate. I got thrown for a loop by the OPs terms.

This makes me (cautiously) happy. I want a table that is basically a slimmed down computer. The iPad is nice but i would have liked it better if it ran a modified OS X just so i could have a full computer experience on a tablet. If Windows can make a modified Windows 7 with good battery life and under 1Grand I'm sold. But that's one BIG "If".

It's about time! If Microsoft introduces a tablet/slate, with all the features iPad is lacking, apple will be forced to add these features, USB slots as an example. Te competition will only make the iPad better. And I think it's pretty obvious MS would make a modified version of Win 7, to better accommodate a mobile device.
@Posidon79: Actually windows 7 installs and runs decent on 512mb ram, sure it's not lightning fast, but it works.

Microsoft has been "serious" about tablets in the past decade. However it failed again and again. Keep failing Microsoft.

Microsoft isn't going to go after the iPad half-cocked. They will bring it.
07-12-2010, 02:35 PM #35
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Microsoft release the Courier!!! That will kill the iPad and is what the iPad should have been from the get go. Screw the iPhail, it's crap!!

As nice as it sounds, Im not sure if I would do the switch to a windows tablet, first customer service for windows sucks, and Apple has treated me well in this aspect (obviously personal opinion) Second, I wouldnt jump on buying the windows tablet due to them always having alot of issues with bugs and expensive running systems, My opinion overall Apple keeps it simple, this would force apple to step it up and Id love to see what they would counter microsoft with, this is def worth following.

microsoft will probably mess up knowing them and not be innovative but just pump the usual stuff out
