3 Thing Microsoft achieved through the launch of the Surface Tablet


Would I seriously consider buying a tablet which:

  1. Is light in weight
  2. Has an elegant, sleek and sturdy design
  3. Runs office
  4. Where the cover morphs on to be the keyboard
  5. Is attractively priced
  6. Has an acceptable battery life

You bet I would.

And, I am not alone in this – there are so many people who have voiced the same opinion.

Microsoft has demonstrated point (1) & (2), has definitely promised (3) & (4) and has hinted (5) & (6). Will they be able to deliver? We have to wait and watch, but…

#1 Microsoft has definitely created a buzz and a sense of anticipation

If you are a developer could you afford to ignore such a platform?

Especially, when all the applications that you develop will run not only on the Windows 8 laptop and desktop but also on the Windows 8 Phone.

Add to that the fact that Microsoft application development environment has always been the easiest to learn and most productive.

Even before this launch “Developer Economics 2012 survey by Vision Mobile” show that 57% of the developers plan to adopt Windows Phone platform. Now, they have been given one more impetus to convert their plan to action.

#2 Microsoft has given developers more reason to develop application for Windows 8

If you are an OEM intending to launch a Windows 8 tablet what would you reaction to the design of the surface?

You may feel betrayed but, you would not want to leave the field and not launch a Windows 8 tablet. After all there is a chance that Windows 8 tablet will become a great success.

I bet you would now feel compelled to come up with a matching design.

#3 Microsoft have nudged the OEMs to come up with best of class innovative design

Finally…

I have been using Windows Phone (Samsung Omnia) for some time now.

I must say that the Metro UI has a seductive quality. It is responsive and it feels warm.

So, Microsoft may not have lost the game after all! I still think that in 3 years Windows Phone would become #2 in the market and here are 11 reasons.

  1. Very interesting news from Microsoft, recently created a very large amount of successful camera if you want to read more about it, see page

  2. In terms of general high quality of image, the Logitech got here out barely above the other two.

  3. I may add #7 Apps that I can add !

  4. The Surface Tables sure LOOKs good, in the launch video, but the proof will be in using them

    I made a best of video about the Microsoft Surface Tablet event which shows the feaures you mention perfectly on my Youtube channel http://www.Youtube.com/SurfaceTabletTips

    It is Probably Best idea to buy the Ultrabook Microsoft Surface version, (since the RT Tablet version which seemed broken during the Launch event…)

    And It is clear that Microsoft went out to make a great Tablet PC and Tablet product this time, and I can’t wait. I’m mostly on Youtube, so feel free to leave me a comment there.
