Tablets will outsell Desktop PCs in 2013 says Microsoft

Oh, Oh! Microsoft thinks Apple will take over the world in 2013.

Speaking at TechEd Europe in Amsterdam, Microsoft’s VP for Windows Web Services, Antoine Leblond said: "Next year, tablets will outsell desktop PCs." If true than Microsoft is in deep trouble as Apple owns the tablet market. Unless Windows 8 will trigger a miracle and Windows 8 tablets will push Android out of the way and catch up to Apple, a future where tablets outsell PCs is not ideal for Microsoft.

Microsoft entered the hardware game a couple weeks ago with the introduction of the Surface tablet computers. It is still not clear what these means for the whole Windows hardware industry.
