For me, it was Windows at the beginning and it is Windows until now. That’s the same for millions out there. But when it comes to more portable devices, Windows has barely no name in this world, since Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile is not quite a threat for iOS or Android. So, when it comes to mobile things, people have either Apple devices or those that have Android inside. So, it’s either Apple or Google, when it comes to mobile operating systems.

Damage done by … the Windows 8 impact!

Are you afraid, iPad?

Google has had a brilliant idea with Android and it’s unbelievable how fast it has picked up. Definitely, the fact that so many OEM (original equipment manufacturer) have partnered with Google to put Android on their devices has been crucial to its success. Apple is something totally different, as they make the physical product and its “soul”. What Microsoft is trying out right now is somehow mimicking Google’s way to spread Android.

Yes, the iPad should be afraid of what Windows 8 and Windows 10 will soon mean to the world of tablets. Even if Windows 8, Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro or other Windows 10 versions are not cheap softwares to get, OEMs around the world will concentrate their efforts on Windows 8 products and proof to that is the rising army of such devices. Apple is left alone with a single brand – or two, when iPad Mini gets released – in front of such a huge hoard. Do you think the iPad will resist to this huge impact? I think not. That’s why we started this blog, to showcase Windows 8 and Windows 10 applications, so that you can make your own judgment – if it can beat the iPad or not.

Price might still be a barrier, but just like Microsoft managed to price their Surface at $499, I think others will manage, as well. I have to wonder if Microsoft is planning a Surface smartphone, as well, because that would mean real trouble for the guys at Cupertino. And, apparently, Stephen Elop, Nokia’s CEO, seems not to have any issues with that. So, if the iPad is afraid, should the iPhone be, too?

Now, more than one year after writing this post, it makes even more sense to assume that the iPad should be afraid of the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows 10 tablets, because there will be so many of them in 2014, 2015 and the years after that. Gartner estimates that there will be 400 million Windows tablets shipped in 2014 alone, which is a huge number indeed. And the number of apps is growing in the Windows Store, so let’s see what will Apple have to say about this.

If you are the owner of an iPad and are interested in other related Windows news, I suggest you to check out the following:
