Maybe. Good point. I think Windows on ARM tablets could actually succeed.
4 plus ones

- Microsoft would have had a very good chance in the business segment due to their Windows monopoly, but the recent consumerisation of corporate IT is quickly eating away at that advantage to the benefit of Apple (and probably others) - just ask RIM. So unless the device is vastly superior in some way (and probably cheaper), it is going to be a tough sell for Microsoft and Co.

- I don't think they are doing the distinction correctly. The approach of Win VS Win NT is rather antiquated. I think if you want a more moden comparison it looks more like:
x86 - PC
Arm - Tablet
And of course both will be tied into the WinPhone. I for one cannot wait to see the Win Tablet. having used both an iPad and Android Tablets I have found them either severely lacking in features(iPAD) or having a less that great user experience (Android). Both drove me back to using my Android Phone and Win Laptop. I'm willing to bet the the Win Tablets will pull me back in though.Feb 11, 2012
- out of curiosity, what features did you feel the iPad lack? Compared to the android.Feb 11, 2012
- The only thing the iPad needs is more RAM actually. Everything else it already got. Of course it would be nice if we got a better screen, but it's not necessary.Feb 12, 2012
- afaik they will support a few of the core Office apps native on Arm. That would be the compelling factor.Feb 15, 2012
