Microsoft Surface is making lots of buzz since it was announced on 18 the June 2012, Microsoft Surface is projected to be tablet PC series and will have two variants but in a market already full of too much competition this will be interesting to see that what Microsoft is actually aiming at by announcing this series of Tablet PCs at this time. However we will try and understand that what could be the reasons of this Microsoft innovation .
We all know that Microsoft in a leading company in software technology but as usual technology has answers for every new innovation. Companies are trying to utilize every opportunities to get hold of this lucrative electronic market. Microsoft understands that the future of computing will certainly not be a computer that we have seen till now. a computer that has mostly relied on Microsoft Windows to run on. Though Microsoft has been the undisputed leader in the computer operating system in terms of sales and reach but Microsoft has failed to do the similar magic with its mobile device operating systems like Widows Mobile and Windows Phone.
The future of computer is smaller and smarter. Microsoft has seen the gap that was existing in todays scenario. People need the strength of a computer and the flexibility of a tablet device. There have been many tablet devices but lacking the strength of a computer. There is a huge market of people who need core computer function ability for everyday usage but there has not been any option already available in the market that could have served this need. A smaller device that can do the same like a computer and also a tablet. Microsoft has tried to find out the answer for it.
Considering Microsoft’s reputation is computer operating system, people will mostly rely on Microsoft for a computer. Microsoft surface is going to feature Windows RT ( Windows for ARM infrastructure) in Surface and Windows 8 pro for Intel CPU in Surface pro. Like all earlier Microsoft operating system these will be awaited and also trusted ones.
By providing a keyboard along with Surface tablet Microsoft is aiming to make it more of a computer and again the price which is an official secret but discussed around U.S $ 599 for Surface and U.S $ 999 for Surface pro will be a very good price for people who have been using Microsoft operating system for years and now just want there computers to become smaller and smarter.
