Why Windows 8 Tablets Will Surprise Everyone

Why Windows 8 Tablets Will Surprise Everyone | Windows 8 Debuts 2012 | Scoop.it

 

Windows-based tablets haven't been treated kindly by the test of time.

That’s a shame because Gadget Lab has seen a Windows 8 tablet in action, and
the experience opened our eyes to just how useful — and, yes, even fun — a
Windows 8 tablet might be. Sure, Microsoft was demoing a mere reference design,
but what we saw was so intriguing, we’re legitimately excited to see final,
shipping products.

Windows 8 is being developed from the ground up to elegantly run on both
traditional computers (desktops and notebooks) as well as touch-based tablets.
The OS can run on either ARM or x86 processors, though apps written specifically
for the x86 desktop environment won’t be able to run on ARM-based mobile
devices.
