The Tablet War heats up

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has puffed out his chest and thumbed his nose at the iPad as Microsoft prepares to do battle with Apple.

Ballmer announced most major PC companies, including Dell, Acer, Samsung, Toshiba, and Sony, have tablets in the pipeline at the company’s annual partner conference in Washington, D.C. All these devices will be running on the Windows 7 operating system.

Hewlett-Packard was not mentioned, as it will be designing a slate device that runs off Palm software.

At the same conference, Microsoft announced that online auction firm eBay Inc, tech services company Fujitsu Ltd and PC maker Dell are among the companies testing Microsoft’s new Windows Azure platform appliance, which lets customers implement Microsoft’s newest “cloud” server technology in its own data centers.
