Dell and HP are key to success of Windows 8 tablets

Tony Bradley | March 20, 2012
Dell is committed to joining the tablet fray once again--this time with Windows 8 tablets aimed at going head-to-head with the Apple iPad. That is good news for Microsoft because Windows 8 tablets will essentially be dead on arrival without strong support from Dell and HP.

In most cases the IT department must bend to the whims of the departments that actually conduct business and contribute to the bottom line. If executives and business units can get their jobs done more efficiently on Apple iPads, demand from the business units will generally trump the IT department.

Although Microsoft is coming late to the tablet party, the inability of Android tablets to compete against the iPad leaves Microsoft with a huge opportunity. It had better work very closely with app developers, and key vendors like Dell and HP, though, to ensure the entire Windows 8 tablet experience is phenomenal and capable of competing with the iPad.
