Microsoft unveiled its Windows 8 developer preview earlier this week, but how does it compare to iOS?
Microsoft has done some impressive work with Windows 8 to make it truly slate friendly. Hardware specifications and specifics are still being fleshed out but the core software compares favourably to Apple’s iPad iOS 5 software. In the video below we compare several scenarios in Windows 8 to an Apple iPad running the latest iOS 5 beta. We could not extend this to more built in features like Mail, Calendar, App Store etc as a lot of these experiences are not available in the developer preview build of Windows 8. As Windows 8 progresses we’ll post a more in-depth comparison between the two to highlight both company’s tablet offerings.
