Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

how vehemently you defend Microsoft, I hope there is a nice pay cheque for you at the end of all of this..

Wp8 announcement proves how crap the underlying subsystem of wp7 is. No support for dual core cpus, no support for high res displays etc. Poor Nokia, they dumped Meego, they dumped the N9 which was apparently half baked, to lay in bed with Microsoft and sell Microsofts half baked OS and no update to wp8 ... :facepalm:

There is a reason wp7 appears smooth its running on a low screen resolution, on a mainly text based interface, it doesn't multi task properly it doesn't do half the stuff Android does, its live tiles are mediocre compared to notifications. The notification systems on Android and ios do this task _much_ better and the newer updates for jelly bean only serve to widen the gap.

Next time for some surface bashing, 10" too big for a tablet too small for a laptop.

I cant imagine getting any serious work done on a 10" screen, Cant use the keyboard on anything other than a table, as it doesn't support the weight of the screen and will just fall off of your lap. Can you imagine sitting on a couch watching TV and using this thing while trying to use the keyboard ? It makes the keyboard absolutely useless.. All that bull about the noise of the hinge who gives a flying monkeys. The whole point of a tablet is to use it away from your desk, while travelling, while walking around, Microsoft just doesn't get it, seriously they are completely clueless.

To anyone who is now going to post but you don't need the keyboard attached, again let me state what is the point of the keyboard if you can only use it at a desk ? the place you are least likely to use your tablet.

From personal experience, any content producing work on 10" screen(document editing, presentation creation and similar heavy pieces of work) is like engaging in masochism. That is why I stopped using my netbook for anything after a few months.
