July 12 : Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer says Microsoft is “hardcore” about making Windows 7 slate computers like the iPad. He said Microsoft is working with more than a dozen manufacturers on this project. A snapshot of the screenshot lists the Tablet Partners Microsoft will be working with.
Ballmer announced this during a keynote speech in Washington DC at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference .
This would be interesting for consumers with another alternative. Personally, I think the Android tablets would be a better alternative to Apple’s iPads. Windows is notoriously well know for its heavily bloated operating system and for it to succeed drastic changes must be made to the OS.
