Microsoft "Although Bill Gates stepped away from his day-to-day role at Microsoft nearly five years ago, he still keeps a close eye on the company he co-founded - and he isn't always happy with what he sees. During a recent interview broadcast this morning on CBS This Morning, the Microsoft chairman was asked by Charlie Rose whether he was happy with Steve Ballmer's performance as chief executive. Noting that there have been 'many amazing things' accomplished under Ballmer's leadership in the past couple of years, Gates said he was not satisfied with the company's innovations." It's impossible to deny by this point that Microsoft hasn't done well in mobile. It would be more surprising if Gates had denied it.

I can read. It is just that I don't know of any x86 tablet that even comes close to the ipad in terms of size, weight or price. Maybe mention what device you have cause the guessing game is getting old.
Windows has a 90% marketshare because of the apps. When you take away the apps windows is less useful than android or iOS.

Acer W510. Thinner, Lighter, 9hr battery life (18hr with dock) and for $499 which is the same price as an iPad and includes twice the RAM and twice the storage.
