Microsoft to Announce New Slates Aimed at the iPad

CEO Steve Ballmer will unveil the devices at CES.

NY Times: Bill Gates first began touting tablet-style PCs a decade ago, but Microsoft has never succeeded in introducing a slate device that caught on. In 2011, Microsoft will once again roll out a line of tablet PCs at the Consumer Electronics Show.

According to anonymous sources, CEO Steve Ballmer will present several devices at the show that are similar in size and shape to the iPad, but also have a slide-out keyboard. "The company believes there is a huge market for business people who want to enjoy a slate for reading newspapers and magazines and then work on Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint while doing work,” said one insider.
