Microsoft’s usual plan is to offer a free upgrade to users of older versions of Windows to bump up to the next release version. This time around there will be a cost, according to sources.

New iPad Vs. Windows 8 Tablets: 8 Considerations

Apple shipped its new iPad on March 16. Predictably, it was a smash hit, as the company said it sold more than 3 million of the devices during the first weekend. Microsoft, meanwhile, is planning its first serious entry into the media tablet market this fall when it will introduce Windows on Arm (WoA) tablets. The question for those who have yet to jump on the Apple bandwagon is whether to opt for the new iPad now, or to wait until Windows 8 tablets are available, most likely starting in October.

A feature-by-feature comparison of the two platforms is tricky, given that new iPad is a real, shipping product, while WoA systems have yet to arrive. (We’ve left the more conventional, Intel-based Windows 8 tablets out of the equation to keep things, er, apples to Apples.) The performance of Windows 8 tablets will depend greatly on how hardware makers like Nokia, Lenovo, Asus, and others, implement Microsoft’s specifications. Read more »

Windows 8 Tablets: Just as Crisp as the iPad’s Retina?

Windows 8 specs include displays that are even sharper than Apple’s fabled Retina display, which Apple claims is as clear as the human eye is capable of seeing.

Microsoft’s newest operating system supports a 10.1-inch tablet screen with 291 pixels per inch resolution, the company says in its Building Windows 8 blog. That compares to the new iPad with 265 ppi.

Depends on Hardware Partners

But because Microsoft doesn’t build its own hardware, it doesn’t demand that tablet screens or any other screen meet a single requirement as Apple can with the New  iPad. Read more »

Six Features You’ll Love in Office 15

Most of the attention on Redmond this year is focused on the upcoming Windows 8 operating system. But, the next generation of Microsoft Office is also currently under development–ostensibly to be launched along side Windows 8 this fall–and Office 15 has the potential to be the real hero among the two. 

Microsoft has made a number of major changes to the latest version of Windows—not the least of which are the touchscreen optimized Metro interface, and adding ARM-based tablets as an option. But, as the de facto productivity suite for businesses, Microsoft Office is the standard bearer of the Microsoft Windows operating system and Office 15 has the power to drive adoption of Windows 8 by taking advantage of the unique capabilities of the new OS.

 Microsoft, together with West Coast Customs, have put together an unusual creation: A 2012 Ford Mustang, albeit with a 1967 replica body in a matte black finish, and as much Microsoft-powered tech as possible.

“Project Detroit,” as it’s called, will be formally unveiled on Discovery’s Velocity Network this Sunday, March 25 at 9pm PT/ET. But Jeff Sanquist and Tim O’Brien of Microsoft’s Channel 9 have already posted many of the details.

Let’s start with when you first approach the car, where Windows Phone integration lets you find, unlock, and start the car via a Viper-developed Smart Start app. The car comes with 4G and a hotspot mode (no carrier listed yet) that gives multiple devices Wi-Fi access on the go. The 4G network connects to Bing Maps, Read more »

Windows 8 update: Dell thinks it can sell Windows 8 tablets

Dell’s Chief Commercial Officer Steve Felice told Reuters this week that he thinks disaffection with iPads by corporate IT departments creates an opportunity to sell mobile devices that run on Windows – something they are familiar with.

“On the commercial side there are a lot of concerns about security, interoperability, systems and device management, and I think Dell is in the best position to meet those,” Felice saiys.

In addition to taking a run at Windows 8 Dell may also fire up its Android tablets again, but that is to be seen. “We have a roadmap for tablets that we haven’t announced yet,” he says. “You’ll see some announcements…for the back half of the year. We don’t think that this market is closed off in any way.” Read more »

Microsoft announced that it’s timing its Windows 8 Consumer Preview release with the availability of beta versions of Visual Studio 11 and NET Framework 4.5. All are now set to be released Feb. 29.

Microsoft Office 2012 Technical Preview Review

Microsoft’s next-generation Office suite recently reached the Technical Preview stage, allowing third parties to test Microsoft’s pre-beta code. The software giant released early copies of Office 2012 to a number of businesses, partners and OEMs in January ahead of a public beta this summer. Thanks to a source with access to the Technical Preview, we’ve been able to get a closer look at Microsoft’s plans for its next Office suite.

Office 2012 applications all run as standard desktop apps across Windows 7 and Windows 8, and some will even come packaged in an ARM edition of Windows 8 later this year. Office 15 takes a different approach to design, minimizing the ribbon by default and using a full screen “backstage” menu (similar to Office 2010) with navigation controls on the left. A pin icon controls whether the ribbon interface is open or minimized, and it remains largely untouched at this stage of development. Microsoft’s Outlook 15 application, missing from the company’s preview of Office 2012 on ARM, looks the most changed – with a Metro-style navigation at the bottom of the application and the switch to “People” instead of the traditional “Contacts” naming.
