Coming soon: Microsoft Windows Competitor to iPad mini

Microsoft released its game-changing operating system Windows 8 on the 26th of October last year. This operating system changed more than any of the previous versions, especially with its new so-called Modern User Interface.

The corporation has already sold 100 million Windows 8 licences in the six months since it’s been launched.

Along with the launch of the operating system, Microsoft is altering Windows 8 to make it compatible with 7- and 8-inch tablets.

What’s even more interesting is that Microsoft has officially stated that they’re actually working on their own Windows 8 mini tablets. Microsoft CFO, Peter Klein confirmed this in a call with investors about the company’s latest earnings report.

Not many details were released; the exact screen size is unknown, and whether the devices will run Windows 8 or Windows RT (suited for standalone tablets) is also unknown.

However, Bill Gates said that their innovation is to satisfy the many frustrated users who cannot type, create documents or have Office on their tablets. He added that the products with Windows 8 will focus on providing the missing tools without having to go back in time.
