Ballmer: Windows tablets by Christmas

The Emballmer has tipped up in Blighty with the promise of Windows-powered iPad-alikes by Christmas.

An unlikely candidate for Santa Claus, the Microsoft CEO said his wayward outfit needs "to cover all form factors," at a gathering at the London School of Economics.

“We’ve done work on a Windows tablet, and you’ll see slates with Windows on from this Christmas,” he proclaimed.
