361 Degrees Podcast - "Surface Surprise"

Published by at

In the eighth episode of season three of the 361 Degrees podcast we talk about the surprise announcement of Microsoft's Surface tablets and speculate on the company's strategy and the impact on its hardware partners.

Episode description:

This week the team discuss Microsoft's surprise announcement of the 'Surface' tablet, who's building it and why. We're split over the strategy and the impact on the firm's 'usual' hardware partners (and where this leaves Nokia), but in agreement on one thing - it's the first time we've been surprised by Microsoft for a long time.
