Why the Microsoft Surface Tablet is 'Awkward and Confused'


It's a tablet showdown: The Kindle Fire HDX, iPad Mini 2 and Microsoft Surface 2 will all be released this fall.

The Kindle Fire will debut its new Mayday feature and the iPad Mini is rumored to come in gold and with fingerprint technology (like the iPhone 5S), but the Microsoft Surface seems confused, says Yahoo Finance tech reporter Aaron Pressman. While other tablets are coming of age it appears that the Surface is stuck in its awkward stage.
