Apple CEO Tim Cook is convinced that the Microsoft Surface RT tablet will not affect the sales of the iPad. Although Cook the Windows RT tablet has not yet tried, he is of the opinion that Microsoft is trying to do too many things with the Surface.
“I haven’t personally played with a Surface yet but what we’re reading about it is that it’s a fairly compromised, confusing product. I suppose you could design a car that flies and floats, but don’t think it would do any of those things well, ”
“when they look at the iPad versus competitive offerings, are going to conclude they really want an iPad. And I think people have done that to date. And I think they will continue to do that“
Microsoft launched Windows RT earlier today, the new mobile operating system for tablets was introduced during a keynote in New York. Head of the department RT Panos Panay showed during the presentation of a number of important functions see the Surface RT. He explained why Microsoft chose a 10.6-inch screen, and showed unique features such as the TouchCover and he even conducted a successful drop out on stage.
It remains to be seen whether the Surface RT can compete with the iPad, both devices are equally expensive, and the first impressions of the Microsoft Tablet are positive, especially in the area of hardware. The question is how quickly Microsoft the gap to the iPad can close. Earlier this week Apple announced more than 100 million iPads have been sold in the past two years.
The Cupertino company also announced a smaller, cheaper 7.9-inch iPad Mini, which is available from today in the online Apple Store.
