To show you what I mean, take a look at the three-minute video my friends at Netbook News shot in the Microsoft booth at the CES. There was an entire wall of Windows tablets on display, supposedly to convince attendees that the future in the tablet segment was Windows.
Did you watch the video? If so, you saw tablet after tablet with roughly the same form factor (thin, 10-inch), all sporting the familiar face of Windows 7. That's a big failure in my book, as Windows 7 simply can't provide a solid user experience on touch tablets.
Outside of the Microsoft booth at the CES there were a few tablets that showed real promise, but not one of them are running Windows. I am a long-time user of Windows Tablet PCs and I am thoroughly frustrated at Microsoft's failure to address the consumer touch tablet market. Heck, the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet looks really promising, with a brand-new interface that appears to be quite good for touch operation. Can't Microsoft do something like this? I would be embarrassed if I worked at Microsoft in the group(s) working on tablets.
