  1. the future for surface tablets seems nice but because they are so much costly…not many people will be able to afford it, windows 8 can now be run on many phablets and ultrabooks, i think ppl wont opt for surfaces…

      iPhone was much costly when it was initially release but it is the leader in smartphone market. So price is not so important compared to features. However the success Microsoft surface will depend upon on the features and versatility.
