re: 8 Tablets Fit For Windows 8 Beta
This is a weak article. The picture for the Samsung Series 7 Slate is wrong. You didn't even mention the new MSI AMD based tablet which also has a tpm chip built in.
I am running the windows 8 consumer preview on my Samsung Series 7 right now with bitlocker encryption. It is running Office. 2010, Visual Studio 2011 and it flys... The battery last over 6 hours... If I wanted too... I could even run Hyper-v, MS Viso, MS Project, Real Photoshop, or any of the Many many existing windows apps on it.
I use a iPad which I am using to type this. Anyone that trys to compares the Samsung Series 7 tablet and any of these tablets mentioned in this article to an iPad does not understand technology. I have one of each.. An iPad and a windows 8 slate... They both have their role/job that they are the best for...
The article only mentions the Windows 8 tablets based on x86/an iPad and 90% of the Android tablets run on a ARM which uses last power and provides a different experience. There is a ARM version of Windows 8 that is coming out.. And I can only image that there will be new Windows 8 ARM based tablets when it ships. Asus has mentioned at they will have one.
It would have helped if the writer of the article took the time to research if people were already running the Windows 8 consumer preview on any of the tablets that they mentioned.
