Video Showdown: iOS 5 vs Windows 8

Video Showdown: iOS 5 vs Windows 8

The folks over at Winrumors have just posted a remarkably thorough comparison between an iPad 2 running iOS 5 and a Windows 8 Slate device. The video is exhaustively detailed, and goes almost every feature between the two devices.

Of course, it’s rather premature to produce a comparison of any kind at this point, since neither operating system has been publicly released and Windows 8 isn’t due out for at least another year (and thus has incomplete features). Still, however, it’s intriguing to watch. Check out the full 11-minute video below.

    OMG! English is not my native language, but I managed to recognize the freaky Japanese accent. And it’s unbearable to listen to. UNBEARABLE!

    I’m an Apple fan myself, but I’m thoroughly impressed with this Windows tablet.  The only thing I’d have a problem with is the Slate’s home screen; it’s just a little too busy for my tastes.  I might be inclined to buy this tablet if it’s cheaper than an iPad.

    I’ve always liked Apple’s UI, MacOS or iOS, and think that they always make a better one. Seeing win8 side by side with iOS5 it actually wins me over. Probably because iOS is like 5 years old and still haven’t changed a bit (much). But of course, when it comes down to actually usage, it’s too early to tell.
