Windows netbooks versus Apple iPad: Victory goes to Microsoft
ABI Research says that it expects a total of 4 million tablets to ship next year, including the iPad as well as the little-known Archos 5. That number pales in comparison to the 35 million netbooks shipped last year, and a greater number of netbooks that will ship this year.
So when it comes to the category of devices between laptops and smartphones, netbooks win hands down. And given that most netbooks ship with Windows on them, this round goes to Microsoft. (Source: Preston Gralla, Computerworld)
