Microsoft Lowers Windows 8 Requirements, Opens the Door for Cheap 7-Inch Tablets

March 29, 2013

Microsoft has dropped the resolution requirement for Windows 8 on tablets to 1024 by 768, opening up the possibility for less expensive 7-inch or 8-inch tablets running the fledgling operating system.

While the company has released its own Surface tablets and Microsoft partners have released Windows 8 tablet/laptop hybrids, the smart play is to offer 10-inch and 7-inch experiences to hit every possible market. Apple, for example, offers both the iPad and iPad mini. Samsung, Google, and Amazon also offer a variety of tablet sizes. So it would be smart for Windows 8
