The New Microsoft Surface Tablet -the Potential to be Great!
Microsoft yesterday held a very Apple-like press conference to introduce the new Microsoft Surface Tablet. This tablet will run Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 software and will allow Microsoft to compete with Apple's iPad, currently the king of the tablet market.
While Microsoft has succeeded with the X-BOX and Kinect products, they have not done quite as well trying to brand their own PC products, however this time they seem to have a game plan that might actually pay off. In the fall, Microsoft will be introducing Windows 8, a new touch-aware operating system that will run on desktops, tablets, and phones. While I have not had the opportunity to download the public BETA, it seems to be quite a departure from the Windows of today. The new Windows 8 OS will allow users to run software written for Windows 8 on any of the platforms - from desktop to tablet to phone. Depending on the adoption of Windows 8, this could be a big advantage for the Microsoft tablet over the competition. Of course, there are close to 300,000 apps available for the iPad, but none of these apps were designed to run on the desktop.
