Microsoft is essentially a software company, it has tried a few times in the past to produce hardware, some attempts have been successful like the Xbox whilst others have not, like the Zune.
Now according to a report from The Wrap and All Things D, Microsoft is apparently working on its own Windows tablet, in an attempt to take on Apple and the iPad, and we can possibly expect to heard more about it next week.
If this turns out to be true, it will be interesting to see what Microsoft comes up with and whether they will have an Xbox like device or a Zune like device in terms popularity.
Microsoft is reported to be charging tablet manufacturers on average $85 for software licenses, which does make me wonder how they would be able to compete against a Microsoft produced Windows tablet that would not have this extra cost built into their price.
