Strange as it may sound after all the hype we have been exposed to with the recent launch of the latest iteration of Apple’s iPad tablet, the US based Boston Consulting Group has completed a study to see which was the preferred operating system for tablets, and surprise, surprise it is Windows8 that holds sway.

The iOS operating system used by Apple comes second and followed a fair way down the list of the other systems available on tablet from various manufacturers.

To check on the reliability of the findings it is noted that a poll conducted earlier this year by Forrester also revealed a preference for Microsoft Windows as an operating system on a tablet. As Windows8 is close to hitting the market the tablet market better be prepared for an interesting shift.
