Splashtop iPad App Could Affect Windows 8 Tablet Sales

Splashtop, known for its remote desktop solutions, has announced a new capability that will allow the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 to run on an iPad. The solution is targeted mainly at developers, but if it provides a full-fledged Windows 8 experience on an iPad, it could put a dent in sales of Windows 8-bundled tablets. … If Splashtop’s app provides not only a testbed for developers with iPads to test drive apps coded for Windows 8, but also offers end-users a full-functioning Windows 8 experience on iPad, Win8 Metro Testbed could be akin to tablets what Boot Camp is to desktops: that is, allowing users to enjoy both operating systems on one hardware platform.
