"A new poll suggests that one in five Americans plan to buy a tablet computer within the next three years. That's great news for Apple, RIM, HP Palm, and the hardware companies like Motorola who are building Android-based tablets. It's horrible news for Microsoft, which stands poised to miss the tablet surge just like it missed the first three years of the consumer smartphone explosion."
Quite the shame too. I've had two Windows based laptops that convert to tablet mode and found the software totally lacking. Had Microsoft put some effort into the software interface, they could have been first out the door via their laptop division and then followed on with other more modern tablet devices.
