re: Dell Bets On Windows 8 To Take On iPad
I think that price will be a key factor for the consumer market. Amazon put a stake in the ground with the Kindle Fire, and Dell could do the same with a Windows 8 tablet. If their device is too close in price to the iPad, people will say, "Meh, I'll pay the $20 more and get an iPad."
For the enterprise customers, they will need to have key advantages, e.g., integration with Exchange 2010, remote admin, that the iPad lacks. If corp IT departments view the new Dell / Win8 tablets to be just as hard to integrate as iPads, then it will be a harder sell.
