Microsoft's 'Surface' Tablet Plans Are A Risk In Competing With Its OEM Partners [bits.blogs.nytimes.com]
In an annual report that it submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday afternoon, Microsoft finally conceded something that has been rather obvious to anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the personal computer industry and Microsoft’s historical role in it. On page 14 of the document, Microsoft acknowledges that its Surface family of tablet computers could weaken support for Windows among Microsoft’s partners in the PC industry, known as original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs for short.

It will still be good to have a Microsoft reference tablet, much like the Google Nexus lines. It should give the OEMs something to shoot for.
