Back in the 1950’s, if you tried to predict the future of technology they would probably have said that we would have flying cars and jetpacks, and do we? – No.

Trying to predict the future is impossible and technology is moving at such a vast pace but a team of analysts are stating that the tablet computer would ‘sweep the tech-era’ with the presence of Microsoft and their eagerly awaited tablet at CES 2011.

We’ve seen manufacture giants Apple, Samsung, Toshiba and many others all have their time on the tablet market and some failed, some have been extremely successful and made it into the ‘Top 5 Gadgets For Christmas’ – but we are still eagerly awaiting Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer to announce their new tablet to rival the market share Apple currently hold.

2010 has brought the revamp of Window Mobile with Windows Phone 7 and so far it’s been a successful story for Microsoft but still awaiting announcements of the slate.

The New York Times reported that the software giant, Microsoft would be unveiling a whole variety of new tablets next month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) which is going to be held in Las Vegas, USA.

The reason why a tablet with Microsoft’s Windows 7 on would be such a great success in the market and have a phenomenal growth so rapidly is because the operating system will seamlessly work with IT infrastructure and applications for businesses and consumers compared to limitations of the iPad.


For example if you have a terminal server and connected to it via an iPad, you would have to purchase a third party app as iOS doesn’t support remote connections out of the box. Microsoft on the other hand has Remote Connection build into Windows 7 Home Premium – the preferred operating system for their tablets.

Steve Ballmer is expected to announce a variety of devices which have been built but successful manufacture partners Dell and Samsung – this would be expected as Dell and Samsung currently make the vast majority of the flagship handsets for Windows Phone 7.
