    I have to wonder what it'd be like to use Windows on a 7 inch screen. Seems a tad too small... But could be possible...
    Ray8 would get one if it had dual screens.

    Lots of IT people want a Windows tablet? What?! Preposterous! They were paid by Microsoft! No one can like Windows 8! It's awful! It's full of advertisements! I don't like it and no one likes it and that's that!

    Geez....
    Fixed!

    Bill should tell us, he probably has half a dozen lying around somewhere.

    I don't think there is much doubt that there is a market for the paving slabs.

    There is a market for almost anything.

    We shall see if it is a niche - or if hundreds of millions are gagging to trade in their dedicated devices for one of those things.

    You never know - some very strange things happen.

    Millions of people already gagged to replace their desktop with a laptop and don't look back.

    Works very well with Android.

    android's one thing, it's a smartphone OS on a larger screen. Windows, or even RT, on the other hand are not smartphone OS's. Windows Phone could work on that, but then that would defeat the idea for SO many things and would just be another phablet platform out there that doesn't offer anything more or less (maybe except for Office Mobile) than ios or android.

    My Windows CE device has a 7" screen and it's actually quite functional for navigation, making Bluetooth phone calls, watching DVDs, listening to music etc.

    Seems 7 in and low pricing is where things are going.

    Not something that win8 stuff would seem to lend itself to.

    In addition to that $60 thing that you found Wolfie, I have a suspicion google may go under $100 soon with some sort of nexus type object.

    Can you run Office on it though? The thing is, a 7 inch tablet would be a Windows RT tablet with Office 2013. Can that be functional with touch? That's my concern. Along with UI sizing and resizing of UI elements...
