Microsoft not releasing Tablet OS until 2012

• 04/03/2011

Anonymous sources reported to Bloomberg that, although there are currently Windows tablets on, or hitting, the market in 2011, we may not actually see a Microsoft Tablet OS tailored specifically for the form factor until sometime in 2012. Currently we have Windows 7 running on tablets, which works, but its not optimized for touch display.

The rumor extends a little on a release date as well, informing us that the Tablet OS should be on the market with devices by the new 2012 school year (summer 2012) to get a chunk of the education market. Dell on the other hand believes that we’ll see a Windows Tablet OS by January 2012. Interesting…by then Apple may only have 95% of the total Tablet market. ;)
