Microsoft’s slow crawl to the tablet market is nearly at an end. It’s designed the interface of its next operating system, Windows 8, to be easy to use on tablets as well as desktops. It’s created a special version, Windows 8 RT, especially for mobile ARM-based devices. It’s even shoved out multiple free preview versions of the upcoming OS. All that needs to happen now is an official release for Windows 8, which is supposed to happen this fall. And I suppose it’ll also need some hardware. That would be helpful.
