Some were leery that a Windows based operating system would take off after the overwhelming success of the iPad. Many did not think there would be the interest in another tablet. This is what HP thought when their Windows 7 Slate came on the market this last week. Wrong!
The Slate sold out. HP is now wiping the shame from their faces, but it is not so much the average consumer who has been waiting patiently for it, but corporations. It seems that a vast number of big businesses use Microsoft products, hence they want phones and tablet computers that are compatible with the security realm. According to an article in Conceivably Tech, no other product including the iPad meets the security standards they have in place.
I am still holding out for a Win7 format with a larger screen. For some things, size does matter.
