Microsoft just recently joined the tablet competition. On Monday, the computer company introduced its tablet entry Surface in Los Angeles, cbsnews.com reported. Wanting to know if it could rival Apple’s iPad, GreenBeanBuddy looked on the major hit and miss of the new device.
According to the report, the new tablet was unveiled as a tablet-laptop hybrid. It sports an HD display a bit bigger than that of iPad. It also got a kickstand and a detachable cover that doubles as a keyboard and touchpad, detailed the report.
In terms of its design, it seems that Surface got a hit based on the comments of technology experts shared in a post by bbc.co.uk. Nonetheless, as said by Brad McCarty of the “The Next Web” in the same post, Microsoft missed the “announce and ship” strategy implemented by Apple for its iPad units.
Here’s an excerpt from the post Microsoft Surface: Hit and Miss by GreenBeanBuddy.
“On Monday, Microsoft introduced its entry to the Apple-dominated tablet market. Bearing the name “Surface,” the new tablet device gathered mixed reactions from tech critics. However, one thing sure is that its introduction left spectators wanting more important information. But based on the limited info shared about it, let’s check MS’s major hit and miss, as of the moment.
