It seems that Apple iPad’s amazing success has inspired many other Technology vendors like Dell, HP and LG. Microsoft is not an exception any more. With his latest comment at a conference for investors on the Microsoft’s Redmond, Wash., campus, Ballmer clearly indicated that Microsoft is working closely with Intel to launch company’s new baby against Apple’s iPad which is expected to be launch by early new year.

Mr. Ballmer said Microsoft is working closely with hardware partners to improve the quality of tablet devices that run Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system. The software giant, which has four retail stores, is also planning to open three more, he said.

After the huge acceptance of iPad, more and more companies are focusing on tablet PCs and iPad like devices to capture the table PC market. Even the globally not-so famous electronic companies are designing these tablet PCs using the open OS software like Google Android for local markets.

Ballmer also appreciated Apple for doing an interesting job by launching iPad with a twisted comment “they’ve certainly sold more than I’d like them to sell.”

Microsoft will “get a boost” early next year when Intel comes out with a new microprocessor known as Oak Trail designed to work better within the thin confines of a slate device, Mr. Ballmer said. The processor will allow devices without fans to cool them and with better battery life.

Mr. Ballmer said there will be a “lot of cacophony” in the tablet market as hardware companies use other operating systems for their products than Windows. Mr. Ballmer didn’t mention those competing operating systems, but a number of its PC partners are planning tablets running Google’s operating system.

HP is also expected to make similar devices that run WebOS, an operating system made by Palm Inc., which H-P acquired this year.
