Link: Microsoft Shows Off Surface ☍

Shared on June 18, 2012

On some old episode of SchwarzTech Radio, Matt quipped about Steve Ballmer pushing older Windows tablets with, “Look at all these great tablets!” and nobody bought them. I had a feeling this was going to be much like that again, but the fact that Microsoft is making the hardware and put a lot of work in the design, this may be something to keep an eye on. Although I’m not jumping to the iPad-is-doomed camp, this may be the biggest threat to the iPad yet, as long as Microsoft prices it competitively. It’s a bit concerning they couldn’t confirm pricing, specs, or ship dates.
