When the Microsoft Surface was announced in June, I mentioned how Microsoft failed to market the tablet properly:
I am still extremely interested in the Surface, but Microsoft marketed it in a way that has created only minimal hype that could slowly fade away by the time the tablet is released. [...] Now we’ll have to see how much hype the Microsoft Surface can retain leading up to its launch around October or so.
Well, it’s October now. Perhaps you see it differently, but it appears that all buzz surrounding the Microsoft Surface has vanished.
