Microsoft: No Windows Phone 7 Tablet Devices Planned

We’ve previously seen some concept tablets that use Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 as its operating system of choice, but it doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing any such devices soon. At an event in Singapore, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that it’s focused on putting Windows Phone 7 in phones, and that there are no plans for (WP7 on) tablets. This is rather interesting news, especially since HP seems to have ditched its Windows 7 powered Slate, and is now planning to use webOS instead, while many tablet makers out there are opting to go for Google’s Android OS. Do you think that Windows 7 is a good tablet operating system, especially when you compare it to Android and the iPhone OS, or should Microsoft actually consider putting Windows Phone 7 on tablet devices?
