Windows OS

More Tablets

You probably thought to yourself: If  I am going to but a tablet I have three choices – Android, PlayBook or iPad. Well you can now add a fourth. Windows 8 from the all ubiquitous Microsoft is all but live.

So, let’s take a look at five of the best products that rolled off the keynotes into the hands of our editors. (more…)
