re: Microsoft Surface Tablet: 8 Big Questions Remain
Paul: Another good read.
I think in the end pricing and availability are the only major factors that count. Apple has already established extremely well organized supply chain management system. They showed this capability on numerous times. They can produce mass products within few weeks of notice. That's why their profit margins are extremely high. I am not sure how MS can handle this. Even with XBOX success, their history of quality control is not very impressive.
Then again if MS has their own brand of H/W then why would someone buy from somewhere else. Specially when we know these OEMs has the habit to install useless pre-loaded S/W,
