10 Reasons Why Microsoft Products Will Outshine Apple iSlate, Nexus One in 2010
Nowadays, all the talk in the tech space is about Apple's possible release of the iSlate and Google's Android-based Nexus One smartphone. Many observers contend that the iSlate will be the most important product release of 2010. Others are saying the Nexus One could be the "iPhone killer" we've all been waiting for. But maybe it's time to shift that focus to Microsoft and why it could dominate the industry in 2010.
The last year was a tough one for Microsoft. Its Windows Mobile platform sank to around 9 percent market share. Google was the first to build hype on Web-based operating systems. And Windows Vista still kept consumers and the enterprise from fully believing in the value Windows 7 offers.
But 2010 is quickly shaping up to be a much different year. With Bing offering a service that can actually stand up to Google Search, Windows 7 carrying the Microsoft banner forward and the possibility of an improved Windows Mobile, 2010 might just be the year when Microsoft regains its spot as the dominant force in the tech industry.
