Microsoft Opening London-Based Studio For Windows 8 Tablet Innovation
A recruitment drive for the as yet unnamed new studio is currently underway. The new outfit will initially be based at Microsoft Studios' Great Pulteney Street premises in London and will commence operations in November. It's interesting to see Microsoft putting so much effort behind the tablet now; the iPad proved it was a winner years ago, but obviously caught everyone by surprise. After all, tablets had failed in the consumer world years prior, but obviously expectations and demands have changed since. Will Microsoft's Surface slowly eat away at the iPad's market share? Let's ask that once more after the holiday season concludes.
