• Watch a Windows 7 Slate Take On the iPad



    What happens when a Windows 7 tablet takes on the iPad head to head in a series of every day usage battles? This video happens. Place your bets!
    The Hanvon Windows 7 slate shown here is presumably one of the many Windows 7 tablets Microsoft expects by year's end. The surprise here isn't that the Hanvon's a clear winneróit's notóbut more that it's able to at least keep up with (and often beat out) the iPad while also including a camera, USB, SD card slot, and a trackpad. With all that comes an unpleasant blockiness, though, and I'm guessing the battery life on this thing doesn't compare.
    Still, it's good to see iPad competitors starting to show a little moxy. It'll be interesting to see which, if any, can successfully storm the castle.

      Windows 7 tablet is much better than iPad. It's got a camera, USB port, SD Card and Trackpad. It's got Flash too...... There's noting to compare at all. Windows 7 Tablet got everything and iPad lack so many things...

      i dont know i think the ipad ran a little smoother with the zooming, and also the ipad has the dumb little apps but their still fun, the fact that the windows 7 tablet has usb ports, sd card reader makes it a better buy considering if its the same price as the ipad.

      Don't know but I'd have to say win7. it did look like the ipad ran smother over all and the on screen keyboard seemed better. on the other hand what are ya going to do when the ipad starts getting funky? it's nothing to reformat and install a new os on a windows based system

      not sure about the ipad (do you have to mail it back)?
