Microsoft’s Surface tablet will reach to a very little market in 2012 as analyzed by the research firm ABI Research.
Microsoft has introduced two tablets; one is Windows RT based ARM Tablet with NVIDIA processor while the other is Windows 8 Pro Tablet based on Intel’s x86 architecture.
[hana-code-insert name=’StumbleUpon’ /][hana-code-insert name=’Reddit’ /]According to the research firm, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows RT based tablets would constitute about 1.3% of 2012 global shipments. These results have been made by considering that Windows 7 is already in the market and the consumers are using it, while the Windows 8 and Windows RT will come in the market in October.
“The obvious ‘low hanging’ market opportunity for Microsoft’s Surface tablets is with business buyers that have an installed base of Windows PCs,” ABI said. “Microsoft may face an uphill battle by throwing its hat into the mobile computing tablet ring.”
