For $25, Turn Your iPad Into Windows 8 Tablet

Ever curious about how Windows 8 would perform on a tablet, you can now bring that OS and its highly-acclaimed Metro UI to a test drive using your iPad.

Splashtop, a company that developed remote desktop apps for Android and iOS, introduced the Win8 Metro Testbed. For $25, the app brings authentic, not-emulated Windows 8 into your iPad.

Before downloading the app, however, you need to run Windows 8 Consumer Preview on a separate PC (which you can download here). Then, install a small streamer file on the PC. Once you have downloaded and install Win8 Metro Testbed on your iPad, you would be able to stream Windows 8 from PC to tablet by WiFi at up to 60 frames per second.

The app would allow you to experience Windows 8’s native touch gestures like swiping from the left to switch between apps, swiping to the right to reveal the options menu, and pull from the top to close an app.

Excited? You need to download the Win8 Metro Testbed on iTunes now before its price jacks up to $50 after initial promotion.
