re: Microsoft Surface: Enterprise Tablet Market Isn't Enough
I work as head of IT at my corp and all I see are headaches from the Surface. You can read between the lines on a product rollout and there are several red flags. One is the Surface web site still says "coming soon", which is ridiculously negligent for MS after a rollout. The other was the Surface crashed during the demo, which is now viral on Youtube. OK, maybe that was a fluke. There's no specs, shipping dates, ability to pre-order, etc. It's a tablet with a kickstand and a floppy keyboard to make it back into a netbook which (because MS won't release pricing) is speculated to be more expensive than a comparably spec'ed netbook or ultrabook. The lesson is, if the company producing the product doesn't show much faith and support it in, then you probably shouldn't either. Caveat emptor.
