In what could be termed as a mini tech show, Microsoft in partnership with the original equipment manufacturers showcased 20 Windows based Tablets. On display was Asus, Lava, Acer, Dell, HP, Panasonic and Lenovo. All these premium brands had their ‘to be launched’ tablets at the experience zone!
The USP of the Windows Based Tablets is the ability to multi-task. As a user you can listen to music, watch videos, download data and work on your presentations, all at one time. These tablets come pre-installed with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows Home. So, you get the same feel like the one on your desktop or laptop.
In order to make you more comfortable with Windows Based Tablets, Microsoft has made it mandatory for all of its OEM partners to equip the devices with all purpose ports. This would enable the user to easily connect to the internet by using a dongle, to a television through a HDMI cable and to a keyboard/mouse/printer/headphone via USB port.
According to Microsoft, the tablet segment has seen a huge demand since its inception in year 2010. So much so that the current growth rate stands at a staggering 629 percent.
No one single operating system has the silver lining these days. The consumer usage patterns are constantly changing and evolving. Thus, there is a need for the software and hardware manufacturers to keep pace with the times. This is where Windows Based Tablets come in. They provide a much needed third angle to the tablet war which is currently going on between Apple and Android based tablets.
Just like the Windows based PCs, the Windows tablets could prove to be the turning point for Microsoft. It has not yet tasted the kind of success it would have liked to with the Windows powered smartphones but the tablet segment is quite a different thing. We loved the look and feel of the tablets on showcase. These products would soon be hitting the market and we are pretty sure that as a user you would love these Windows based Tablets.
As of today, Microsoft is providing 1,40,000 apps in the Windows Store and more than 2,00,000 applications in the Windows Phone Store. The software giant claims its users have already downloaded these applications an astounding 250 million times. Microsoft also says that it is constantly motivating developers to build applications which are beneficial for the Indian customers.
