re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
The disarray is more imagined than real. At the release of Surface RT, the projected release of Pro was 90 days. The 90 days is not yet up. That Microsoft is not making song and dance, preferring to be as tight-lipped as they were about the Surface, does not signal any disarray. I think.

re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
You have no credibility.

MS publicly stated a schedule in February. They then revised their schedule in June.

5 months later you claim disarray even though you admit they said in June - 90 days later.

You're a laughingstock.

re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
Microsoft have always said 90 days after RT for Pro, how is that a delay? As for Clovertrail, yes they weren't available at launch which is a shame but there are delays and delays. You may wish to speak to Mr Thurrott down at winsupersite as he got a retail Samsung Clovertrail tab yesterday, with pictures to prove it...

re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
Marcus is dead right, the author fails to understand the difference between Windows Pro OS and Surface Pro tablet in the first place.

On 26th Oct, both Windows Pro OS and Surface with Windows RT were released as planned. The Surface Pro which will come with Windows Pro OS will be available in 90 days.

If this is not clear to the writer, he needs to do some research.

Idiots!

re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
Idiot writer, understand the difference between Windows Pro and Surface Pro in the first place. Windows Pro OS was released on 26th, along with Surface and Microsoft has kept its word.

Now for Surface Pro, which is a new hardware that can run Windows Pro OS is expected in 90 days post 26th October. So still time.

The is no confusion, other than you are an idiot and not in touch with what is happening in the IT world.

Information week needs to fire this person immediately, stupid, ignorant and fanboi writing articles without any basis or background

re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
Information Week writers seem to be doing this to Microsoft all the time, especially anything Windows 8 related. I read some of IW articles just to get my blood boiling, then delete the article. About ready to delete IW entirely. They have become worthless.

Vasya, go away, quit posting. You are saying nothing of value. You have gone off course, missed the point. Quit wasting space. Go kiss you iPad.

re: Microsoft Windows 8 Tablet Plans In Disarray
As a tablet consumer I don't feel I've lost much with connecting a printer.... Everthing else in your list does not matter to me on a tablet.

BTW, learn to use iPad, there are tons of Office replacements which are much more usable there. Office actually feels retarded and outdated and for what? For editing resumes? In case Ballmer fires and need to show someone knows Office?
USB and HDMI with mirrored or extended view is there through adapters.

Live Tiles is BS... seriously, poor man's replacement of notification centers.

And that's it.

Firing head of the project. Microsoft is sued over 32GB storage claim. Consumer tablet costs more than competition.
I did not buy it. I do not want it.
It is based on failed interface of WP7 00..oops, that would be you?
