Microsoft And Samsung Try To Make Bill Gates's Tablet Dreams Come True | Fast Company

Final paragraph of another Tablet PC => Windows 8 review

Which leads us to wonder: Can MS carve out a decent niche in the new tablet market...with Samsung's help? Both firms have the incentive to do so, and their parallel innovations in hardware and software could synchronize nicely. We suspect that the iPad will continue to dominate the market for some time, because Apple has stolen a massive lead, as well as the lion's share of the public attention, and has been aggressively innovating itself (rumors about the iPad 3, due early in 2012, suggest it'll have a high resolution screen that makes most laptops hard to gaze upon). But with Samsung once burned in the Android tablet game, and MS's huge installed user base and fans as rabid as Apple's, it's possible that the device the two reveal next week could really turn into something that sells rather well. Better late than never, eh Bill?
