What happens when a Windows 7 tablet takes on the iPad head to head in a series of every day usage battles? This video happens. Place your bets!

The Hanvon Windows 7 slate shown here is presumably one of the many Windows 7 tablets Microsoft expects by year's end. The surprise here isn't that the Hanvon's a clear winner—it's not—but more that it's able to at least keep up with (and often beat out) the iPad while also including a camera, USB, SD card slot, and a trackpad. With all that comes an unpleasant blockiness, though, and I'm guessing the battery life on this thing doesn't compare.


Still, it's good to see iPad competitors starting to show a little moxy. It'll be interesting to see which, if any, can successfully storm the castle. [All Things D]
