Re: Not surprising

So did HP and RIM

Bad price points. Apple products still have a sense of awe about them to most, If you are going to spend £399 on a tablet which would you go for an Apple or a Microsoft?????

All well and good upgrading the exchanges

Still does not mean your street cabinet will be upgraded. Unless you are in a cabled virgin or other provider then there is a good chance. But those of us who can only use BT are left on the shelf.
