    If people want desktop functionality in a portable device - will they pay extra in money,
    I totally think so.


    If people want tablet functionality, will they be prepared to pay some sort of penalty for a desktop to be thrown in - again they might have no use for it.
    . You'll have to ask the individual on that one, I'd say a lot wont, but some will.

    I personally think that if Microsoft can make a decent dent in the market with phones and tablets, we should see some exciting times ahead. If they cant, it looks like I'll have my PC's, Android tablet, Android Phone and iPads to play with.

    We're not talking about other products here, we're talking about Microsoft, which needs to stand on its own merits. Or does it? What is Microsoft actually trying to achieve? This is starting to sound like a Monty Python skit or even The Life of Brian: Monty Python, Life Of Brian (1979) - You're all individuals - YouTube.

    Every once and a while I get the opportunity to appear brilliantly prescient by pointing out something that is blatantly obvious but which has been so obscured by valiant marketing efforts that it makes me look like a grand wizard at detecting emperor nakedness just to say it. In this case, it’s that Windows 7 is becoming the next Zune.

    I don't know why, I just thought this was appropriate here.

    An interesting consolidation of comments:

    Less than flattering reviews of Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet start to, uh, surface.

    Defending Microsoft, isn't that what you said you were doing a few days ago.

    Have you read any of the reviews I posted links to? I think that you assume too much, or are you expecting every review of the Surface to be bad, for reasons only beknownst to you.

    I don't have to read anything Ray, I know what most are going to say, that's why I put up the comment about the Zune and Windows 7. As I've said before, the Media hate Microsoft and they'll do anything to put it down.
