Google The Next Web: "Google has also been working with Samsung to launch a 10-inch tablet, confirming leaks which suggested Google had teamed up with the Korean manufacturer for another device. Our source tells us that internally the tablet goes under the name 'Codename Manta', runs Google's new Android 4.2 operating system (previously referred to as Key Lime Pie, but is set to retain the Jelly Bean branding), and will offer a 2560x1600 pixel (10:16) resolution, which we believe will offer around 300 pixels per inch compared to the new iPad's 264 PPI." Between the iPad and this supposed Android tablet... Poor Surface. Poor, poor Surface.

True. They need good luck, but Android doesn't necessarily present bad luck for Surface.

The same vacuum that existed in the phone space when Android was launched, exists now in the tablet space for Windows 8/RT.

It is the perfect storm for Microsoft. I will bet that a year from now, Microsoft will have a significant hold of the tablet market.

OK, I can take the other side. How much do you want to bet and how do you define "significant"?
