The Surface Pro is indeed a good game machine. For business, not so much... Will the Surface Pro/ RT join the following companies and products that failed to become successful. Will history repeat itself for MicroSoft? HP Slate 500, HP TouchPad , RIM PlayBook, HTC Flyer, Transformer by Asus, Kindle Fire, Coby 8.0, CrunchPad, Microsoft Courier, Wacom, Apple Newton, Lenovo U1, LCARS PADD 1) Can you name a few more? 2) How many did Steve Ballmer introduce to the public. 3) Will Steve Ballmer will be around to demo a new Tablet next year? Thanks for your help.
It's worth noting that the Microsoft Courier was not a failed product at all; it was an engineering prototype that never made it to product stage. Similarly, Wacom isn't remotely a failure--indeed, they are the market leader in drawing tablet technology. Most of the rest of your examples are, to say the least, rather specious.
