Microsoft Says Tablets Top of Mind Amid Apple Success

Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer said tablet computers are high on his priority list as Apple Inc. takes the lead in a market his company has tried to foster for more than a decade.

“Today, one of the top issues on my mind is ‘hey there’s a category we have had Windows on for a long time and Apple’s done an interesting job of putting together a synthesis and putting a product out,’” Ballmer said today at Microsoft’s annual analyst meeting at the company’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
