Microsoft may launch a Surface Tablet partner program during Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2013. Will a Surface Mini Tablet (countering iPad Mini, Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HD) debut around the same time?
Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2013 (WPC13) has started in Houston. The VAR Guy is closely tracking Surface tablet, Office 365, Windows 8.1 and Windows Azure cloud computing news for partners. Stay tuned to this live blog.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer wrote a 2,700 word reorganization memo. He didn't mention the term "channel partners." Is that an innocent error or a major mistake days after Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2013 (WPC13)?
Microsoft has renamed, or partially unnamed its Surface RT tablet to merely the “Surface.” The Surface RT struggled in the market through its first year in the wild. It has been mostly replaced by the new, and quite nice, Surface 2.
However, Microsoft intends to continue selling the Surface RT for some time, perhaps getting rid of unsold inventory, at a reduced price.
