Dell is developing a business-friendly tablet that works with Windows 8. Windows 8 is due later this year, though a release date hasn￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルt been set.

Michael Dell said there￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルs growing demand for tablet computers that can run the next version of Windows, which may help his company siphon away corporate customers from the iPad.

The goal is to entice business customers by running Microsoft￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルs Office applications something other tablet’s isn￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルt designed to do and letting the device connect securely to corporate networks. Dell is seeking an edge over the latest iPad, unveiled yesterday, which sports a faster processor, sharper screen and speedier wireless service.

￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒワHaving a secure Windows tablet that works with all the Windows applications we￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルre hearing a lot of demand for that and we think that will be quite attractive,￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒン Dell said.

Still, the iPad is making its own inroads in the corporate world. Apple is on pace to sell $10 billion worth of iPads to businesses this year, according to Forrester Research Inc. (FORR), succeeding in a market that has traditionally been Microsoft￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルs strength.
