Gabrielross: I totally disagree with you. I work for hours at a time on my iPad. Even when I have a laptop sitting right next to it. The iPad is far superior for many tasks (like interacting with books, media, typing short emails and Facebook statuses, etc, and even giving presentations with something like Prezi. Use the right tool for the job.

The problem is, is it too late? Listen to this interview with AppCentral CEO: http://soundcloud.com/scobleizer/the-state-of-enterprise-mobile We cover the kinds of reactions to Windows 8 that he's hearing from enterprises (they make a great enterprise app store for all sorts of platforms). Windows Phone had the same exact kinds of reactions and ended up with 3% market share so far. Why? App developers (the kind that are venture funded, like coupons.com, which got $200 million in funding and have a billion value) are telling me they are ignoring Windows 8 unless it sells. We also don't know the price yet and with a very nice $200 Android tablet out there (the Nexus 7 is pretty freaking awesome for the price) and more coming from Amazon, I think Microsoft really is gonna struggle here and that you might totally change your tune if they don't get the pricing right. Also, Windows 8 is so different that many enterprises might totally ignore it for a while, sticking with Windows 7, or "BYOD" (Bring Your Own Device) users will decide to go with the "safer" iOS or Android tablets. That said, I agree that Microsoft is doing innovative work here, the keyboard is very nice. I just don't know that's enough and we don't know VERY important things, including the price and the initial set of apps.
