Windows "Asus has a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high - $599 to $1299 for a hybrid - that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace. We were leaked Asus' holiday roadmap and the slide below tells the tale." If this is for real, Windows 8 is screwed in the tablet space. Nobody is going to buy a Windows tablet at prices higher than the iPad.

A couple of points:

Windows 7 tablets also integrated perfectly into the ecosystem. How well did they do?

BYOD is already out of the gate and gaining acceptance. It would be tough to put that genie back in the bottle.

In many ways, there is no such thing as a windows 8 desktop. Its only Windows RT with legacy mode for older more useful apps.
