Windows OEMs Plot iPad Revenge

The biggest issue surrounding the iPad is its use of an iPhone-based OS, rather than a full-fledged computer operating system. While there are clear technical sacrifices, the stripped-down OS should offer greater usability. The market will decide if features or elegance is more important.

The PC set has an opposite approach. Vendors such as HP plan Windows 7-based tablets, which means these machines are true desktop/laptop/netbook equivalents. You can actually get work done on these things.

What approach do you prefer? Let me know at dbarney@redmondmag.com or post your comments below.
