VentureBeat: “Real innovation has been laid upon innovation here. If Microsoft stood on the shoulders of giants who started this tablet revolution, the company has done its predecessors proud.

I really hope Microsoft can deliver this device, and I hope it succeeds. A real competitor to iPad will make Apple step up its game, which is good for consumers and developers. We all win.
