Windows Slates

July 12, 2010 13:44:50.107

Microsoft says that Windows 7 Slates are coming:

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told the 14,000 partners during his July 12 keynote at the Worldwide Partner Conference to expect new Windows 7 slates before the end of this year.

But, here's the question: will those slates just be Windows in a different form factor, or - as Apple has done with the iPhone and iPad - will they be running a variant of the OS that's specifically tunes to the form factor? Will it be "Office on a Slate", or will there be an app store?

The funny thing is, they have the infrastructure for a store, with the Zune and the Xbox - but will they put it all together, or continue to have a set of very disjoint products?
