Microsoft aims to compete with Google Android with its tablet-friendly Windows 8. Android has gained huge success in both smartphone and tablet markets. Though Microsoft’s other major rival Apple is also there, Windows 8 is set to compete with Android in a Google style device. Microsoft has tied up with almost all Android product makers including the majors like Samsung, HTC, ASUS, Acer, ZTE, Dell and others to build hardware solution for Windows 8. In addition, Microsoft has announced an exclusive Windows 8 App Store, which will accept open source third party apps too.

What are your thoughts? Could Microsoft take the tablet market by storm? Or is it too little too late?
