[quotemsg=11353241,0,149725]Honestly I find the Surface to be a better option than the iPad but the truth is that the masses are blind sheep and appeal to mass marketing. Microsofts current RT adverts have been pretty good but its going to be hard for anyone, even MS, to break Apples hold on the public.[/quotemsg]
Well, every product has its share of fans, even Blackberry has some people buying up their latest devices while public in general ignore it. While you like Surface RT, most of the people looking for a tablet don't, including me, who bought two Windows 8 Pro tablets instead of RT. And you are wrong to assume that Apple has a better hold on the tablet market, it is Android now. The latest statistics has already shown more people buying Android tablets than iPad. It is just that single vendor vice Apple still sells more, but against the many vendors Apple market share is shrinking fast.
Well, it is easy to find comfort by thinking whoever that doesn't like RT is one of the blind mass, but it will not change anything as far as the appeal of RT is concerned. If MS wants to sell more RT devices, they better start changing their approach, soon.
