Microsoft Unleashed | Microsoft again a Player in Tech World
Microsoft with it’s Recent Launch of ‘ The Microsoft Surface ‘ and ‘ Windows Phone 8 ‘ has surely jumped or I must say re-jumped into the Tech world with utmost force and Dedication any company right now could have achieved. Microsoft has successfully created the excitation in the tech world with it’s Surface, which is promising. the keyboard cum Cover serves the user the comfort one needs while using a tablet, and the stand which I think wasn’t Necessary, but it surely adds an edge to the Product. The weight and Thickness/size of Surface is what some analyst are pointing out as it’s bad point, but I think that thickness could have been reduced or should had been reduced, but the stand compensates for the weight.
I think that microsoft surface not only competes with iPad and other tablets in the market but also the Recently hyped Product Ultrabooks. The reason I consider microsoft surface competing with ultrabooks is that the Functions to be offered by Microsoft Surface are somewhat similar. I am expecting microsoft Surface to do all the stuffs an Ultrabook can do with some limitations in speed as Ultrabooks come with SSD, but microsoft surface is surely an entertainment device which most of the ultrabooks fail to be. So, when I have one Grand in my pocket, I go to a Store, I have two choices, one is Latest Microsoft Surface and other is an Ultrabook. I would surely choose the Microsoft Surface because of it’s Portability, functionality and Style. ofcourse, it would too early to speculate about any functions to be offered by Microsoft Surface, but having Experienced Windows 8 and knowing that one Model of Microsoft Surface is gonna equipped with Intel icore chip, I assume that the chip will be used at it’s peak, and we all know what intel chips are capable of.
Microsoft Surface also does not carry any mobile operating System, but fully Functional Microsoft Windows 8 featuring Metro UI and it’s Apps. So the Microsoft Surface here again proves that it is not Specifically a microsoft Tablet but an all in one gadget a user wants besides a Smartphone. Windows 8 has already won many hearts with it’s Metro UI and support of so many Apps, which makes a traditional Computer more Personal. how many of you have personally felt an urge to play cut the rope, Angry birds, etc on a larger screen ( I mean Touchscreen ). Microsoft Windows 8 is surely gonna change the way we use or view our present computer, and I am damn sure Apple is gonna have a launch next year purposefully focused against Microsoft Products, which is now very common in Tech World.
Windows 8 also lacks in few Perspective like providing the normal desktop user the experience of Metro UI. If you dont have a touchscreen, then I suggest you should run and get one, because the rates of screen are gonna shoot once Windows 8 is launched. windows 8 also changes the way it functions, so the way most famed softwares like Adobe Creative Suite, maya, etc and graphic suites are gonna function on Windows is gonna change. I am expecting Photoshop to come up with a UI that is specifically designed keeping in mind the comfort of touchscreen users. Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 share the same core, which means that once Developer has made an App for Windows 8, then it can be easily tranferred to Windows Phone 8, which is Good news for new Developers,and a bad news for old Developers. The good news is because if you are a newbie in developing, then you get a large exposure for your app with less Hassle, but for Old Developers are worried because with the core sharing, Windows removed support for sliverlight from Windows 8. WP 7 won’t be able to upgrade to WP8, and IE10 is plugin proof.
Microsoft Windows Phone 8 is not only competing iPhone4S, but it also is compelling Apple to Launch a Product which functions little close to what WP8 can do. Windows Phone 8 not only does what present Android or iOS can do, but it extends to much more. The Features revealed till now were only for Developers Community, but with this knowledge, we can expect Windows Phone 8 to be the Best new Product this year. Windows Phones have been continually praised for the METRO UI and live tiles, but Windows 8 brings custom size Tiles, etc which is gonna Enhance the User Experience.
Windows Phone 8 is gonna be powered by Nokia Maps Technology which is considered by users and Developers and Analyst and critics to be the only Maps technology capable of competing with Google Maps.
Microsoft has Registered it’s come back in Tech World with a Bang. The only Microsoft needs is to create a fan Base, which is right now owned by Android and Apple. But I am sure that Microsoft Windows 8 and Microsoft Windows Phone 8 are Capable.
