That's what it has come to, Apple fan boys will say this and that, but in 2002 Microsoft had that tablet.

Now it has come to a point that saying what your table does is copying LOL.

So has the I phone copied others because it makes calls? LOL.



Microsoft got it all wrong with their idea of what a tablet should be, they thought everyone would need and want a full OS computer in a tablet form.

Steve Jobs could see that if you take away the complexity and simplify the OS and use finger based touch as the main input, this would succeed.

Microsoft still don't get it and insist on making Windows 8 a desktop experience with this Metro UI bolted on.


Here is a good article that highlights the problems with this announcement:


Why I love Microsoft’s vaporware Surface tablet
Friday, June 22, 2012 · 11:03 am

“I don’t wish to suggest that Microsoft Surface is truly vapourware, but surely it’s suspicious that it’s announcing a product that no one’s going to be able to buy for half a year,” Alistair Dabbs writes for Reg Hardware. “The problem with jumping the gun – apart from the ‘false start’ accusations that lead on from this metaphor – is that commentators are left with a void to fill. Lacking a physical product to test, all we can do is talk bollocks based on conjecture.”
“Take ‘Metro,’” Dabbs writes. “‘We call it Metro because it’s modern and clean.’ Oh, and here’s me thinking they called it Metro because it’s populated by young Algerians brandishing flick-knives and smells of wee.”

“‘Surface has not just one but two cameras.’ Yes, and it also has not just one but two stereo speakers, not just 76 but 77 keys on the keyboard, and the rectangular unit has not just one but four edges. It also has none of these things because it doesn’t bloody exist yet,” Dabbs writes. “I was also evilly amused watching Microsoft’s Windows president, Steve Sinofsky, deal with a frozen manufacturing mock-up of his non-existent tablet live on stage at the beginning of his presentation.”


Dabbs writes, “So how does the Surface tablet compare? It doesn’t look ugly but I suspect it’s going to be nut-crunchingly expensive: ‘About the same as an ultrabook,’ means a starting price of £1000. Hmm, should I buy a diddy Windows 8-only tablet that has a built-in stilt or buy a MacBook Air with proper memory spec, full-size ****-off keyboard and trackpad and that will run just about any operating system I want?”
