Microsoft To Control The Windows 8 Tablet Hardware Process Just As Windows Phones

Acer’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer J.T. Wang said to Bloomberg that Microsoft is controlling the hardware process of the upcoming Windows 8 based tablets. He also added that its very troublesome for the hardware makers. I think Microsoft’s strategy is to control the fragmentation among the tablet makers to ensure consistent Windows experience among the devices just as they did it with Windows Phones. According to me, specifying minimum requirements, platform, etc, won’t be a major concern for OEM’s. Lets see how that goes as Windows President Steven Sinofsky is scheduled to demo Windows 8 at the All Things D conference this week.
