Microsoft Tablet to Take A Stab at iPad Killer

Microsoft, the world’s most awful software manufacturer, is the latest company to make an “iPad killer,” according to rumors.

A few days ahead of Billy Gates’ big announcement in Hollywood on Monday, snitches are leaking details about a new tablet fronted by the computer giant. The Wrap claims to have spoken to a Microsoft insider, who said they’re, “making a foray into a new hardware category that would put the company in direct competition with rival Apple” (tablets).

Why anyone is still using a Microsoft anything (Xbox 360 aside) is beyond us. Across devices, phones, notebooks, PCs, etc., anything Windows based usually craps out. The Xbox 360 is the only Microsoft device made that works.

This isn’t the first time Microsoft has tried its hand at manufacturing a tablet. A decade before the arrival of the iPad, a softie made a chunky PC tablet which had a slow response and a stylus. Plus there was the Courier, a dual screen folding tablet which was worked on between 2008-2010, around the same time the iPad made its debut. In fact, the team that worked on the Courier won awards for their iPad app, Paper. How you like them apples?

Will a Microsoft made tablet be just as good or better than the iPad? We don’t know. Guess we’ll have to wait ’til Monday to see what Microsoft rolls out at their secret event in Los Angeles. The tablet is rumored to run Windows RT, a version of Windows 8 that uses an ARM microprocessor.
