Microsoft is one of the world's greatest companies; it hires some of the most talented people; and it has created huge wealth for its stockholders over four decades. So why haven't they been a fast-follower in mobile?
Initially, a few things turned me off about the Surface RT. Before I bought it, I read the specifications and I thought how can I live without certain features? Now I have come to realize why Microsoft made the design decisions that they did.
Is the Surface a Tablet or a Laptop? Perhaps it's somewhere in the middle. Will you love it or hate it? So much depends on your Windows needs and how closely integrated you are into the world of Microsoft.
Surface is gorgeous, and it has some unique features and accessories. But the big question is whether it will be enough to woo customers. This question must be eating away at Microsoft execs, because they desperately need Surface to be a hit.
