+ - The iPad vs. Microsoft's "Jupiter" Devices->

Submitted by harrymcc
harrymcc (1641347) writes "A dozen years ago, Microsoft convinced major manufacturers to put Windows CE inside devices that looked like undersized touchscreen personal computers. The platform was code-named "Jupiter" and shipped as Handheld PC Pro, and it flopped--it turned out that people wanted full-strength notebooks. But in retrospect, it was a clear antecedent of what Apple is doing--much more successfully--with the iPad."
