A Year Into Windows 8: The 10 Biggest Mistakes

#9 Bad bet on tablet sizes and shapes

The travesty with Microsoft is that, the company started designing tablet with the idea that the device will be a PC without keyboard a year before iPad launched, but the company is yet to come up with tablet which dishes out good tablet experience.  And when they actually launched one last year, the first noticeable flaw was, the devices only worked in landscape mode. The trouble is, people preferred the portrait mode over landscape mode for many reasons like reading an ebook, and others.
