Microsoft recently launched its tablet pc known as the surface its a windows 8 based tablet that has whole new features and is first from microsoft but it seems like Mircrosoft’s partners aren’t really enjoying the release of surface, because Oliver Ahrens, Acer’s senior VP and president for Europe, Middle East and Africa, told Reuters that Microsoft’s plan to take on Apple with the Surface tablet will fail, He also said that Instead of focusing on Windows 8, the software giant has started a whole new war with Apple and its products and partners which will make him suffer for sure.
“I don’t think it will be successful because you cannot be a hardware player with two products,” he said to Reuters. “Microsoft is working with two dozen PC vendors worldwide, including the local guys, whereas Apple is alone, it can more or less do what it wants. Microsoft is a component of a PC system. A very important component but still a component.”
