That's because Windows 8 promises a better environment for touch in mobile computing, and the promise is too tempting not to experiment. Or, alternatively, all these companies need a product out there to plant a flag into this strange soil -- a territory that Microsoft's already visiting via the Surface.
The big problem I see with them is that for every device that emerges, the landscape gets ever-more-cloudy. … Read more
