Windows 8 Vs iOS 5 Running on iPad 2: Feature-by-Feature Comparison Video

Microsoft released the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 – its next generation Windows operating system yesterday.

Microsoft brings the touch-friendly Metro Style UI from Windows Phone for the desktop and tablets with Windows 8. Microsoft says that with Windows 8 it has “reimagined  the different ways people interact with their PC and how to make everything feel like a natural extension of the device, whether using a Windows 8 tablet, laptop or all-in-one.”

The Verge has an excellent feature-by-feature comparison video of Apple’s iOS 5 running on an iPad 2 and Windows 8 Consumer Preview running on a Samsung Series 7 Slate PC.

While Microsoft has tried to bring the Windows operating system to tablets, Windows 8 appears to be the most promising attempt and should give Apple’s iOS a run for its money.
