What’s new with Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) after NOK
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Surface 2 is now in the market and it is all set to launch a new one into the hungry market. This will be different from the 10”designs that have been dominating the tablet space.
If this tablet finally sees the light of day the projection is that it will sport a 7.5”display said the director of Tablet and Monitor Research, Rhoda Alexander. She says that the information that she has indicates that it is an RT tablet that has an aspect ratio of 4:3 and its display-resolution is 1,400×1,050. There is also a possibility that this piece will be either 3/4G capable which is a 1st for a Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) tablet.
The added benefit
Earlier this year, the company’s corporate VP Michael Angiulo told CNET that one of the main reasons of launching an RT tablet with an ARM chip is that Broadband can be added to it. These also tend to have a much longer battery life. Though there is no commitment from the company about a particular launch date, news has it that the mass production will commence in the 2014 Q1.
There is also no news about whether there is any change in the initial production plans. Another area that is very foggy as far as this new tablet is concerned is its price. It is believed that this new tablet will be priced lower than the latest tablet.
The new tablet will be considerably smaller, be priced lower and had the potential to take the tablet market by storm. At the moment, The Nexus 7 from Google and the iPad Mini rule the roost. Very recently, HP also announced the Android tablet- the HP Pro and Slate. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is involved in the development, licensing and support of a variety of software services and products.
