It’s been quite a busy week for Microsoft, with them announcing 2 Surface tablets, Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 7.8 and some more minor news, such as the Audible app finally being released for Windows Phone.
I’m not going to attempt to cover all the information by myself, so here are links to The Verge‘s relevant articles:
- Microsoft Surface tablets announced
- Windows Phone 8 (for new phones out later this year)
- Windows Phone 7.8 (for current phones)
I recommend watching Windows Weekly 256, which will cover most, if not all, of these topics. Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley discuss the latest Microsoft news each week, and this week will be especially interesting. You will be able to watch it at http://twit.tv/ww.
What do you think of this week’s Microsoft news? Are the Surface tablets an iPad killer? Will their launch hurt sales of Dell’s, Asus’ etc. Windows 8/RT tablets? Will you buy one?
