hahah good news :D
but why wouldn't it every device has 1 of 5 options

android has the most devices.

im also pullin a patcher here and saying that more companies will dev tablets and make their own os because Microsoft isnt dominant on those territories like on windows and linux. an os is vastly more complex. but hp doesnt find android tablets or ios tablets to be a threat so we might see 7 tablet os by the end of 2012
