Microsoft has just launched its own tablet computer dubbed Surface for Windows 8 Pro, for business. Though it is marketed as a tablet, it has an innovative keypad which will transform itself into a laptop making it an enviable tool for any business. Not only does this mobile device do the business, it also looks the business, and with some highly competitive packages for business users on the horizon, this device is set to take the business world by storm.
Yesterday, every cutting edge business wanted iPads, but with Apples notoriously poor integration with most of the standard Microsoft based office packages, the Surface tablet could be the elegant solution everyone has been looking for.
How will it change the way people conduct business? No one knows for sure but three things are predicted to happen as soon as the tablet hits the market.
1. Replace your Laptop with the tablet
The Surface for Windows 8 Pro is designed to be a total computing solution for most homes and offices. This is being seen by pundits as a bid to end the dominance of the hulking, beige, desktop computers and, possibly, the ubiquitous laptops. Its outstanding features including the Touch Cover keyboard, a kickstand as well as the multiple data ports, making it a top draw in both laptop and tablet markets. Its unmistakably laptop functionality squeezed into the size of a tablet is really an innovation that could set a trend in the tablet technology in the future
If your job demands high levels of mobility between your office, home and elsewhere, Surface Pro could well be the only mobile device to rely on.
2. Better Support, More Apps
What makes it more advantageous when using a Microsoft device is that most IT staff are more fluent in its support and offerings as well as development, than iOS. It is particularly difficult for developers to create apps for iOS because it’s not a cheap investment to start with. Aside from the Apple environment, developers need to use Apple-specific tools and hardware that Apple can understand. Most companies don’t invest that much on Apple equipment for use by its employees.
3. A Simple Transition
When the latest model of the device that you bought over a year ago hits the market you feel like you paid more than was necessary for fewer features. The perceived price of early adoption. Microsoft’s Surface tablet will eliminate that feeling by making it work perfectly with apps and other third party products that were previously developed for Windows 7 environment. This new generation tablet enables users to switch tools only if they are ready to do so.
