I'm a geekette who enjoys playing with new technology for software developers. I work as a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft. My current focus is on Windows Store development for Windows 8.
Microsoft’s latest campaign directly compares the new wave of Windows 8 tablets/slates against the iPad.
For side-by-side spec comparisons, see http://windows.com/compare. (Notice that you can change the Windows tablet to one of four options: the ASUS VivoTab Smart, the Dell XPS 10, the HP ENVY x2, or the Microsoft Surface RT.)
