Windows With Windows Phone 7 being a success among critics and probably the only mobile platform which tries to take at least baby steps away from the old WIMP/desktop paradigm, it's not entirely unsurprising that a lot of people are asking for Windows Phone 7 on tablets. However, Microsoft once again reiterated that WP7 is not meant for tablets, since they view tablets as PCs - hence, they will be running regular Windows.

Yeah, but still, you would get an iPad-like device PLUS a device that can handle a fully featured Office Suite, fully featured music creation tool, fully featured graphics creation tool and what not. I don't know about you, but I think to have the possibilities right there is quite compelling. And, you know, the first devices will come out next year, so ARM devices will be quite a bit faster than today. So, the speed shouldn't be such a limiting factor anymore. And of course you can always opt for an x86 Windows 8 tablet, though you will probably lose quite a chunk of mobility with that.

I even think that Apple will try to do the exact same thing with iOS and Mac OS X. They'll be merged eventually and run on a Tablet. So keep the idea growing on you and cheer Apple for doing it the day they announce this move ;) And don't forget to keep on bashing MS meanwhile ;)
