Windows 8 based slates

21 Jul

I’m really looking forward to BUILD and some more news about Windows 8. In the meantime I’m running Windows 7 on an Acer slate (read my review here) for work and serious browsing and iPad to browse and read on.

Today I read a post saying that iPad has dropped from more than 94% share of the market to a 61.3% share. Over the same period of time, Android tablets jumped from a 2.9% share to a 30% share last quarter. “According to market research firm Strategy Analytics’ latest report, Windows-powered media tablets owned 4.6% of the global market in the second quarter of 2011.“, the post from BGR says.

I really, really hope that Microsoft is launching Windows 8 (beta) soon – and it better look damn nice.
