Microsoft's 'Fantastic' New Tablet Gets Big Praise From Tech Blog

First Microsoft was making a tablet computer. Then it wasn't. Then it was again.

Now it has.

And the results--at least from one influential tech blog--are that it's "fantastic."

Gizmodo:

A Microsoft tablet with Windows 8 has been a long time coming, but it's finally here. Sort of. We got our hands on a developer's preview yesterday and while flawed, it's extremely impressive.

High points of the device include:

Easy and responsive touch-screen interface.

"Blazing fast" speed.

Killer operating system (the test version was running Windows 8)

Extremely customizable interface.

Drawbacks:

No Flash (though because the device tested was just a preview model, Flash may still make it to the final version).

A fan that almost always runs.

Still not as a good as the iPad.

So there you go. Apparently it's time people finally took Microsoft seriously when it comes to tablet computers.
