Windows 8 Devices – It’s Time to Take Another Look
A lot has happened since Windows 8 Devices made their debut a little over a year ago. Like any new kid on the block, initial introductions were tentative while established players determined if Microsoft had the chops to go the full distance. But with a history of operating system market leadership, backed by a huge commitment to R&D as well as a partner channel eager to step up and embrace the Windows 8 advantage, Microsoft is seeing steady adoption across both consumer and enterprise customers.

It’s time to take another look.

Everybody’s Talking

PC World recently profiled Windows 8 devices in their buyers guide with the following enthusiastic summary:

“But Windows tablets have killer features of their own that help them excel at portable productivity:
  • SkyDrive-powered syncing features make it easy to hop from PC to tablet to laptop and back again without skipping a beat.
  • Internet Explorer 11 is a full-blown, desktop-class browser, unlike the mobile versions of Chrome and Safari. Yes, that means it works with Flash and Silverlight sites.
  • Once you’ve used the Snap multitasking feature, going back to one app at a time on Android or iOS just plain hurts.
Discover for yourself why leading organizations like Novartis and Toyota Racing Development are making the switch to Windows 8 devices. Learn which Windows 8 tablets are retailing for as low as $299. Understand why a rich corporate buy-back program might help you securely deploy mobile applications at a fraction of your planned budget.
