Microsoft and their partners are planning on launching an aggressive attack on Apple’s iPad and its market share this fall, according to new information, which recently appeared online. That’s when the next generation of Windows – 8, is going to be released and Microsoft and Intel are stimulating big mobile device manufacturers to assault Apple.

Currently the iPad has about a 70% share of the tablet market, but if Windows 8 turns out to be a success, Microsoft reckon it can be brought down to 50% by the middle of next year. By this year’s end we should see more than 30 tablets with this new platform with prices starting at less than $300, so there is¬†definitely¬†a huge potential. Still, judging by Windows Phone current state, even innovative platforms with a friendly and simple user interface sometimes turn out to be unsuccessful. B. A.
