The new tablet concept introduced by Microsoft earlier this week doesn’t seem to be so responsive and snappy, especially when the operating system crashes. Microsoft’s Windows and Windows Live Division President, Mr. Steven Sinofsky managed to crash the system just 13 minutes after the presentation began.
The Microsoft representative was apparently trying to launch an instance of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser, but the unit refused to pay any attention to his fingers. After a few failed attempts to restart the tablet, Mr. Steven Sinofsky ran back and grabbed another device that finally took pity on Microsoft’s image and decided to allow Steven to open the browser.
We are wondering what version of the tablet was the one that crashed, but we don’t think we’ll be able to get an answer from the software giant. The question is a good one still: was that an Intel-based device or an ARM one?
