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.

I stopped reading your post after "It's somewhat adequate at consuming content, but it absolutely sucks at creating it". Come on dude... look at the ipad versions of Garage Band, iMovie and iWork... it ROCKS!...


Toy versions...

Yeah.. toy versions.. that in many many aspects are much better than any similar application for Linux... toy versions that are easy to use, fun, cheap and works very very well... that's enough for me. If I want the complete desktop experience, then I use my complete desktop computer...

I think you missed the entire point of the article. That tends to happen when you stop reading something before you've finished and jump to conclusions. The entire point of the article is that there would be no reason to switch to your laptop or workstation if the interface was designed properly; if you plugged a keyboard and a mouse into a tablet, would it not at that point essentially become a desktop?

Not really... "more limited".. They're not toys, especially not GarageBand. In many ways, GarageBand does exactly what you need from a mobile recording set-up. The drum sequencer is pretty awesome... people pay a lot of money for something like EasyDrummer, and in this it is free. iMove is a harder sell, it works well with video recorded under iOS, but it pretty much fails if the movies are recorded in the wrong aspect ration (but fully supported otherwise by iOS.) Pages rocks.. I edited a 100+ page document on it recently, and it works really, really well. Not tried and of the iWorks apps, so can't comment more.
