Here we go again… Microsoft has made another promise. This time, Ballmer promises a bunch of Windows 7 tablets coming by the end of this year. Microsoft plans to partner up with Dell, Asus, Sony, and Toshiba, as well as others. There last few takes at a tablet surely worked out *well* with the successful launch of their baby below (due this summer – tick tock, tick tock), and the “never even existed” Courier.
The boys up in Redmond plan to take Apple head on with a strategy that lures in IT departments. We personally don’t think they’ll have much success with them iPads in the game along with Google’s plans for Android tablets.
Ballmer’s statements occurred today at Microsoft’s Partner Conference, and we’ll probably see some MSFT tablet action at the upcoming WPC.
