At the same time Microsoft competitor Apple is likely to announce the “iSlate” tablet PC. The event is scheduled to be held later this January.

Gadget lovers are eagerly waiting for Microsoft and Apple to launch tablet PCs in the near future. Apple “iSlate” is expected to be a rage similar to iPhone and it is believed that Apple aims to sell 10 million tablet PCs every year.

The “iSlate” will be a grand launch after iPhone and it is likely to be consumer friendly gadget. However despite attractive features the Microsoft tablet will be a better business tool that the “iSlate”. This will be because Microsoft holds a dominant position in the operating systems and Web browsers. Microsoft is thus is in a position to deliver an integrated experience already in use on a day to day basis.
