Microsoft unveiled its Windows 8 developer preview earlier this week, but how does it compare to iOS? In the video after the break Winrumors compared the iPad iOS 5 and the Windows 8 Slate. In this 11 minutes long video they check almost every feature that these tablets offer, from lock-screen to social network integration. Pretty interesting and it looks pretty good for a Windows System. Check the movie after the break. » iPad 2 On iOS 5 vs Windows 8 Slate
A friend of the creators of the Table Connect was lucky enough to be the first outsider to test their alpha firmware on the Table Connect for iPhone and they created a short movie to show their creation.

Pocket-lint got a word from the DSG Group (the owners of Dixons, Currys and PC World) with some information about the “iPad Killer” Samsung Galaxy Tab. They said it will be available in the UK for £599.99 (about $950 US), for a contract-free option. That’s not cheap because you can get an unlocked iPad with similar specs for £529 (though the iPad has a screen almost three inches larger than the 7-inch Galaxy Tab). » Samsung Galaxy Tab Will Sell For £599.99 In UK

Apple has started preparing the Yerba Buena Center for tomorrow’s media event. The event could be one of the most memorable events in Apple’s history. The center gets large banners on the windows with the same color pattern as the invitations Apple sent last week. Tomorrow we will all see Apple’s latest creation and iPhoneFreakz is going to deliver a live coverage of the event on the Live Coverage-page. We start the live blog at 9:45 AM Pacific Time as a warming up, so we’re all ready when the event starts at 10:00 AM. Hope you’ll follow us.
In collaboration with iTabletFreakz.com we will have a Live Coverage of Apple’s special Media Event on January 27th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on this page. The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Hopefully the “come see our latest creation” tag line is suggesting we will finally see the mythical tablet device. It sure looks like this keynote will become very memorable.
