Dell and HP Could Release Windows 8 Tablets

It looks like Dell and HP tablets running on Windows 8 will appear us as soon as next year. This move seems to be the fruit of the fierce competition the companies are facing from the Android table market that reached its peak with Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

Here’s what Dell had to tell journalists presents at the Dell World 2012 earlier this month: “We are very aligned with Microsoft around Windows 8. You’ll hear more about Windows 8 from us and see a wide range of products released. ” Does that mean we’re going to have a Dell Windows 8 based tablet? Well, Dell is no stranger to testing tablets as it previously vexed on a 10-inch Windows 7 tablet at an event in San Francisco in February.

On the other hand, HP keeps interested parties in the dark, even though they revealed a Windows 7 based Slate in October. The device is powered by a .86GHz Intel Atom Z540, 2GB of RAM, 64GB SSD and could handle 1080p video. It also has two cameras, one in front and one in the back. The device is 8.9 inched and has been marketed by HP to the business sector, a move that Dell is envisioned to make with the Windows 8 tablets. The vice-president of HP, Phil McKinney has revealed in an interview, earlier this year that his company is working very closely with Microsoft on Windows 8.

Even if Apple holds the advantage with its iPad in the tablet market, this new alliance could still land a significant share, that could most certainly improve Window’s impoverished funds.
