Microsoft Tablet Computer Coming Soon But CEO Ballmer Concentrates on Windows Phone 7

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO said on Tuesday that Windows-powered tablet computers will be available to shoppers in time for the Christmas shopping rush. However, he was also clear that his current top priority is the Windows Phone 7.

Addressing a gathering at the London School of Economics, Ballmer  said that he recognized that Microsoft, even though they once led the field with Windows Mobile, now has a lot of ground to make up in the mobile market.

Ballmer said that consumers are going to be amazed with the features that Windows Phone 7 will include, calling it a “beautiful product”.  He added that, in a couple weeks, once the Phone 7 is available, people take a look at the phone and say, ‘Wow.'”

The “wow” exclamation is frequently used when describing Microsoft’s mobile business – usually in a negative light. The now-defunct Microsoft Kin phones were the first products to bear the Windows Phone brand. As a result, the Windows Phone 7 must be truly exceptional in order to make up lost ground.

Preliminary reviews of  the device have been promising. However, until the devices hit the market following the October 11th launch event, it is not really known if it will prove good enough to make it possible for Microsoft to get back in the mobile device game.

Companies that have been partnering with developers of the Windows Phone 7 expect the new operating system to surprise Microsoft’s numerous critics — in a positive way.
