re: Microsoft Surface To Start At $599?
If that price is correct, I have to agree with the analysts and say Microsoft will have a tough time going head-to-head against the iPad in the consumer market. If it is targeted aggressively at the enterprise, that might make up for that if businesses are supplying the devices to their employees. Still, that's the reverse of the bring-your-own device trend that has been taking place, which makes it seem like a higher hill to climb than getting businesses to support devices their employees already have. Time will tell though.
