Gates shares reactions to Microsoft Surface tablet

Pre-orders for Microsoft’s Surface tablet are apparently now on back-order of up to 3 weeks, so there seems to be initial demand for the new tablet running Windows 8. Some stores will have the devices on the shelf on Oct 26th, the same day that Windows 8 launches.

Bill Gates is very positive about the new device and Windows 8 combination, although his excitement seems to be more about the form factor of the device itself, rather than Windows 8 “… just the beauty of the device… it is absolutely incredible”
