Windows And there we are - the Surface Pro reviews are in. Reading through them all, there's clearly a common theme, and it's not particularly positive. We're a few months in now, so I think we can finally call it: Windows 8 and Surface are the wrong way to go.

I would argue that it doesn't matter if Windows Phone is not popular among smartphones. It still has more apps than Windows RT and besides, the bet that people would enjoy their x86 apps on tablets through Windows 8 seems to not work very well when you consider battery life, heat, device size and price.

It seems that consumer don't consider these trades to be worth the ability to use their usual programs on a tablet. I bet it's because the vast amount of apps available on both tablets and phones. There is no big need for the usual x86 apps on tablets.
