Interesting quotes from Microsoft’s CTO in SFgate.com:
Microsoft’s chief technical officer and strategic leader Craig Mundie told an audience in Australia that he’s not sure if tablets are here to stay.
He called the iPad an “in between” device and said “Personally I don’t know whether I believe that space will be a persistent one or not.”
Later he elaborated that tablets “are not very good for creating things” and are mainly being used for consumption, not creation of content. “I don’t know whether consumption things will remain a category by themselves or not,” he added.
Apparently he missed Apple’s introduction of iMovie and Garage Band for the iPad 2 earlier this month.
Doesn’t happen often – me – speechless.
