I think they can do both, just go back to the OEM model and sell OS, utility and other software updated via the cloud. Let Asus, Lenovo, Dell, et al fight it out for the best hardware design on the tablet, laptop, and desktop arena. The phone is a different proposition. They need to help Nokia and integrate the company more with Microsoft in some tbd manner.
Thought it was just me! I hated my tablet, sent it back. It did nothing for me. It was sort of convenient but not really, I hated having to hold it up, it was too big and too heavy to do anything for any length of time. And as long as I had to put it down to use it, I wanted the versatility of a real computer. And if I want to watch a movie and I'm home, I'll put it on my big screen tv, although I do like watching small. intimate tv shows from my computer screen. The closeness to the screen is a different experience than the the TV and one that I liked. I'm going to wait until the fall and buy a hybrid that is really a computer when you want it and a tablet if you want it.
