XPad? XTab? If Microsoft is creating its own tablet, what should it be called? [Poll]

Speculation is coalescing around the idea that Microsoft’s big reveal Monday will likely be its own branded tablet, designed to go head-to-head with the iPad.

The New York Times is reporting just that, adding to other accounts saying the same. And now, CNET is mulling what such a tablet might be called: MicroPad? SoftPad? BallPad (in honor of Steve Ballmer)? BillPad (for Bill Gates, natch)?

Take our poll and let us know what you think of some names that have been suggested. Or leave a suggestion of your own in the comments.
