Bottom line: The Microsoft Surface Studio is a big deal. In a time where many of us in the tech community believe the only companies can innovate are Apple and Google, Microsoft continues to show us that although they’ve been late to the game, the products they are delivering are top notch, work well together and are helping to drive and shape the industry. One thing that must be noted is that professionals have not been forgotten — way to go, Microsoft.
The Microsoft Surface has been shown off to the world this week as a tablet with promise and one that could potentially be poised to take over a tablet market that is dominated by the Apple iPad and the Amazon Kindle Fire. However, could Microsoft actually pull off creating a tablet to bring it’s deserving mobile device running Windows 8 to the light?
- It is Microsoft, the same company that has held over 90% of the desktop market for years and many more years to come
- Unique interface
- Intel-based tablets will provide a true desktop experience in the palm of your hands; something that an iOS or Android device will never match
What are potential downfalls of the device?
- Price. The Microsoft Surface running Windows 8 Pro will be in the price range of Ultrabooks; which are out of the tablet market. However, the RT version should fall within the range of other comparable tablets; yet, the user will be limited to the Metro interface.
Bottom line: If Microsoft plays it’s cards right they could have a real winner on their hands. However, the pricing of this product with greatly determine it’s success.
