PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft had its annual financial analyst meeting on Thursday, and Steve Ballmer answered questions about what the company's answer to the iPad was going to be, and whether Windows Phone 7 was going to be a part of that product strategy. He said, "We're coming . . . We're coming full guns. The operating system is called Windows." Ballmer and Microsoft so don't get it. I can't believe Steve Ballmer is making me feel sorry for Microsoft.

This time it is clear that Apple has a very comprehensive and long term strategic road map and that Steve Jobs does not intend to be caught again. By the time that Android or Microsoft match iPad version 1 Apple will be onto iPad V2 or 3


Apple's plan is to sell as many as possible, there is no long term strategic roadmap.

The only advantage Apple has is the app store which won't matter much as these devices are primarily used to surf the web. Most people will not pay an additional $200 for a better game selection.

All a Windows or Linux based tablet needs is a browser and Flash. These are web surfing devices, not computer replacements.

Apple will keep themselves priced out of the $200-$300 range which is where these devices should be.
