The PC ecosystem is being destroyed by the likes of Android and iOS and Microsoft needs a way to prop up the PC so that it doesn’t collapse all together.
Panasonic is set to release its next generation of rugged Toughpad tablets. This time there will be a Windows 8 version in addition to an Android one.
We’ve probably heard the “created for the people by the people” marketing gimmick used at least a few dozen times in the past years or so, but no one took that approach as literally as Razer.

Granted, the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 seems to show that Microsoft did their best and have developed a decent OS, not to mention the impressive hardware announced for the upcoming Windows 8 tablets.
