Surface Is Right Up There With The iPad In Public Demand

same study conducted by the fine folks over at Toluna QuickSurveys (that we talked about here), 12.5% said that they would purchase a Microsoft Pro tablet. Compare this with the 12.9% that chose Apple’s iPad, and you know how neck and neck it is up there at the top. A triple-threat fight to the finish between Microsoft, Apple and Android in the tablet realm is sure to be quite a spectacle. Dig a little more, however, and you will find that only 2% were up for the regular Surface tab — the one that is available in the market right now. And not a soul would blame them for it. The ability to run Windows 8 Pro on a powerful tablet, along with all sorts of legacy applications is just too mouthwatering to resist. Besides, the Surface Pro tablet is a surefire bet in the corporate circles. It’s hard to imagine business users putting in requests for the RT versions of Surface, with its ARM environment and lack of legacy software support. But give them a choice of a Windows 8 Pro tablet, and then see the devices fly off the shelves. Interesting times ahead, I say. The Pro variants of Surface are said to be up for grabs in January 2013. I can hardly wait.]]>
