Well, that was one major clusterfükk.
Why even announce the event to outsiders?
Wow. Almost literally nothing.
I wonder if SB2 was supposed to be the star of the show and they somehow fumbled the ball with a premature introduction?!?? (If so, how do you even make a mistake like that?)
GI’s tagged it in WWII - FUBAR
Qualcomm and their partners still appear to be on schedule, though:
From mspoweruser: "Microsoft and Qualcomm are already testing many Always Connected PCs internally, and they are expecting to start shipping the first just in time for the holidays this December. Notably, Lenovo won’t be able to get its Always Connected PC ready in time for the holidays."
I hope the first part of that quote turns out to be true! Any other mystery events on the horizon where these may launch?
<<...Any other mystery events on the horizon where these may launch?..>>
...Based on the Surface Book 2 introduction, they don't need an event, mystery or otherwise. Apparently, all they have to do is put up a web page...!
To be fair, I prefer an even-handed, professional release over an overhyped, superlative-laced stage debut.
Here is a great article to follow. In particular, Microsoft has stated they are testing "hundreds" of WOA devices in Redmond.
Sorry, but I call BS on this until we see it third party. As I've noted before, Apple can't get 29 hours of Netflix viewing out of an iPad, with all of its extreme control of hardware, iOS, and software - so how in God's green earth is QC getting that with Windows?
For a moment I thought that meant "hundreds of models" but that's probably "couple of models, tens of each". Still, that's great to read, Christmas can arrive soon enough. Christmas decorations and music though..
