Robert Scoble of Microsoft says Microsoft is NOT working on a Tablet PC as has been reported earlier.
I immediately emailed a bunch of people inside Microsoft to check on this report. It is abjectly NOT TRUE. That’s straight from Peter Loforte, general manager on the Tablet PC team. Robert Williams, the guy who deals with all the OEMs, also told me it’s abjectly not true.
It is NOT true that we want to build our own Tablet PC, Peter told me.
We’re trying to figure out how this report got written — we’re getting denials from everyone, so it sounds like a misquoting or a misunderstanding but one that’s worthy of calling out in public and correcting.
Pity. Sure would shake things up a bit.
