The Annals of Newspaper Technology Journalism

Rupert Neate, reporting for The Telegraph from CES on how “Microsoft was on Wednesday night expected to upstage Apple by announcing a ‘tablet’ handheld computer before its Californian competitor”:

Steve Ballmer, chief executive of Microsoft, was expected to reveal the device during a speech to officially open the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The device could be a major blow to Apple, which is widely expected to unveil its tablet, thought to be called iSlate, on January 27. It will also challenge e-readers, such as Amazon’s Kindle and Sony’s eReader.

I like Andy Ihnatko’s take better.
