    Mobile space to heat up, Windows 8 may benefit from BYOD

    Summary: There are a number of releases coming this year and early next that will crank up the already hot mobile space. One of those releases may find the BYOD movement will help propel it in the marketplace.

    The mobile segment is as hot as ever, and will heat up even more with new releases coming soon. The smartphone space will see some dramatic new products that will keep phones flying off the shelves. Tablets will continue to garner consumer attention with major platform updates that will bring them product awareness. Laptops and tablets will begin to merge with the release of Windows 8, and the BYOD movement may help adoption of Windows 8 ramp up quickly.

    Thanks for the article lead, Nelson.

    Microsoft is about to take on tablets in a big way, first with Windows 8 and the mobile version Windows RT. The new OS combined with Microsoft's own tablets, the Surface line, can totally disrupt the tablet segment.

    While new versions of Windows usually take a while to get adopted en masse, the bring your own device (BYOD) movement may accelerate that adoption. The Surface tablets are natural fits for the BYOD scenario with consumers needing a work tablet that also does fun stuff. If Microsoft plays this correctly from a pricing standpoint, the Surface and Windows 8 can shake the tablet segment like a kid clearing an Etch-a-Sketch.
    This is M$s big plan in a nut shell....

    Yes, MS chances rest almost entirely on persuading business to go for win8 BYOD.

    As a straightforward consumer purchase, it isn't going to fly.

    There's Windows 8 To Go which will possibly accelerate the adoption in some enterprise situations, new modern software always beats out using the old!
