Surface is only one of many Win8 based tablets and hybrids that are on the market now. Thes systems may have started late, but so many companies are pushing them in the market and many companies and cosumers acturally like them, so, give it some time, WIn 8 based tablets will slowly take care of business.
can you imigine HP, Dell, MSFT, Samsang and many others, all push WIn 8 tabelts, what may happen to other tablets manufactorers?
"can you imigine HP, Dell, MSFT, Samsang and many others, all push WIn 8 tabelts"
Since MS decided to go into manufacturing their own hardware with Surface, I can only "imigine" resentment, distrust and backlash from HP, Dell, "Samsang" (lol) and any other OEM that has been a loyal partner over the years peddling the MS POS OS.
Just saw that report on CNBC by Gene Munster at Piper Jaffary. Not one Surface sold at the Microsoft Store in the largest mall in America for 2 hours while the survey was being done. Sold Xboxes but 0 Surfaces.
