Re: MS are trying a little harder to push the Surface than the Zune
Although it goes against every fibre of my being, I do partially agree with Eadon here.
The Surface's price is ridiculously high for what it is. Is there anything the Surface Pro can do that could not be done by a similarly spec'd laptop at half the price? Its little brother, the Surface RT, is hobbled by an OS that really, really should have been Windows Phone 8.
If Nokia made a 7 or 10 inch tablet with Windows Phone 8 on and spec'd and sold at a similar price to the Galaxy Tab or iPad, Microsoft would have made a killing, or at least a fairly hefty flesh wound. As it stands now, neither Surface is particularly appealing.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to scrub my keyboard with acid for typing that first sentence.
