THOUGHT: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly - Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.8 and Windows Phone 8
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:24 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Let me start this column with a look back to a statement I made two years ago when I wrote back in 2010, right before Windows Phone 7 was launched: "It's new, it's fresh and it's just different", a statement which even made it into Microsoft's German Windows Phone 7 launch campaign. And even after two year, I don't have to take it back but contrariwise, it was never as true as today. With yesterday's Windows Phone 8 announcement, Microsoft consequently followed its way and who could have imagine two years ago that such a small product like Windows Phone is going to drive Microsoft's 2012 product direction? Nobody! Congrats Windows Phone, congrats Microsoft. Everything done right! Everything?

THOUGHT: Is Microsoft's Surface Tablet and Windows RT and Windows 8 ready for Primetime?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:55 CET under 09 - Thoughts

So yesterday happened what was widely expected, Microsoft announced its own tablet hardware under the "Surface" brand, which was previously used for these interactive tables which are now called "Microsoft Pixelsense". And while neither a Windows 8 nor a Window RT tablet are anything new, at the recent Comdex both types of tablet where shown, the news is that the Surface tablets were developed and designed by Microsoft, without any help of any OEMs and that Microsoft will sell them under the Microsoft Surface brand, again without any OEMs involved. Is this a wise decision, is the overall Windows 8 and Windows RT system ready for prime time and what's next?
