Steve Ballmer: Surface not made to rival other PC makers

Posted on Thursday, July 19 2012 @ 14:30:11 CEST by

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer commented that the upcoming Surface tablet is not made to compete with other PC makers:
The announcement of the Surface tablet has been seen by some as a direct shot against PC hardware makers but Ballmer doesn't see it that way. He states, "With Surface we wanted to make sure that no stone is left unturned, in terms of really showing Windows 8 in its most innovative form. With Windows 8 you can get a tablet and a PC in a single package, and I think Surface probably proves that as well as anything."

He added that Microsoft's goal is not to compete with the many companies that make Windows-based desktops, notebooks and tablets. Ballmer said, "The bulk of our Windows volume is going to come from our hardware partners."
Ballmer also revealed in the interview that he misses having Bill Gates around, he says Gates now only comes in to the Microsoft offices one or two days a month, just to brainstorm with the groups, talk about their plans and ideas for Office and so on.
