Ballmer: Windows Tablets by Christmas

While Apple’s iPad runs away with the tablet market, Windows slates are still preparing for battle, with the first wave to appear by Christmas, Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said.

“You’ll see new slates with Windows on them. You’ll see them this Christmas,” Ballmer said at the London School of Economics, Reuters reports. “Certainly we have done work around the tablet as both a productivity device and a consumption device.”

Tablet watchers could get a taste of what’s to come at a Microsoft event next week, on October 11. Although Microsoft intends to focus on Windows Phone 7, unnamed sources tell Neowin that Microsoft will speak briefly about its tablet plans.
