IDC says Microsoft is expected to build 3 million Surface Tablets – OEM's are screwed

1.2 BILLION dollars. By the way, that’s 1.2 BILLION dollars that Acer or HP or Lenovo or Samsung is NOT making. Does anyone in their right mind expect a publicly traded juggernaut like Microsoft to stop selling the Surface in 2013 if the 2012 batch is successful? If they start selling tablets successfully, then they will move to PC’s – no question in my mind. It would be irresponsible for a publicly traded company not to. And once they are there, why not build a “reference” x86 tablet? And a Windows Phone 8 device (if Nokia isn’t working out). If I was an OEM, I would be TERRIFIED and asking the question – “Does Microsoft really still need us?” Interesting. Source]]>
