Tablet wars are no longer a two way race between Apple and Samsung. Microsoft launched its new line of tablets designed and manufactured by the giant Microsoft itself. They announced that the new tablets will run on new generation Widows 8 platform. Currently Apple and Samsung are the big players in the consumer market for tablet computing and still remain unbeaten. However these tablets will be competing with their own hardware partners such as Lenovo and Dell. Microsoft has already opened booking for their upcoming product and a Microsoft surface support team is already on to understand and study customer reviews and market.
In the present scenario a new laptop or tablet should be capable of working with the prevailing management and security tools and they must be also able to run their existing software. The new surface Tablets are developed in such a way that, they are compatible with all existing software produced by them. The most impressive part is the effort put to integrate a wide range of features into this compact device with a remarkable design.
The surface tablets will be manufactured with embedded MS Lync which will boost the market of Microsoft in the communications and video conferencing areas. When connectivity is added to the video conferencing gateway, it will allow the surface enabled device to participate with other video conferencing calls working on a device such as a computer or tablet or even Smartphone. Users will be able to use this within and outside the organization.
Most of the laptop users will also have a desktop PC and most of them find portable laptops more convenient to perform a video conferencing call. But Microsoft claims that the new series of surface tablets are going to change the situation as they have plans to manufacture stand alone video conferencing devices which will replace all the conventional ways of video conferencing. Equipped with a 10.6 inch optically bonded clear type display, this is going to be an exciting experience for users. Video conferencing can be made on full screen with no stretching or letter boxing. Best part is that all these features are packed in a very compact device which weighs only 903 grams.
Microsoft surface support team also said that their tablets are compatible with Xbox controllers to ensure that their users don’t miss any action. Let’s hope that this device sets new record in tablet computing market.
