Bill Gates predicts iPad and Android users will switch to PC tablets

Bill Gates predicts iPad and Android users will switch to PC tablets | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Users 'frustrated' by limitations of devices, says Microsoft co-founder, implying many will look to move to Surface productss. By Charles Arthur
Matmi's insight:

I'm not sure if Bill Gates is right on this one. I think people who want to create documents will use their mac or laptop, business folk then. The majority of the 141m iPad owners are likely playing angry birds, watching cats on youtube and using facebook/twitter, not much need for document creation within this audience. 


As an aside, I've found creating presentations on the iPad a hell of a lot easier than trying to navigate around powerpoint.


The Surface does look lovely though!
