Cheaper Microsoft Surface tablet: what it needs to succeed

The Internet is abuzz with rumors of a $400 Surface 2-in-1 tablet in the works. Microsoft's premium portable computers have been positively received save for the price tag that very few could afford. This sudden change in direction was reportedly prompted by the tablet renaissance ushered in by the 6th gen iPad. Windows tablets, however, are nothing new and some of them are even as cheap as an iPad. Very few, if any at all, succeeded and Microsoft risks ruining its chances in this arguably promising market. Here are some of the things Microsoft needs to check off if it doesn't want a repeat of the Windows RT.

One Mix Yoga is a 7-inch Windows 10 convertible

Portability, next to longevity, is the name of the game these days. If people could do everything conveniently using their smartphones, they would. Size, unfortunately, is often the biggest hurdle and those who work on the go often need a physical keyboard to type on, not to mention a "full OS" like Windows.

When most of us think of e-ink devices, we probably think of something small like one of Amazon's Kindles. Sony took a different approach with its DPT-RP1 tablet, which features a display as large as a standard sheet of A4 paper and is meant for more than reading eBooks.

Mobile devices come and go, sometimes faster than we would like. A new model is released every year, sometimes twice a year, and software updates often end two years after launch. As it becomes its own man, Google seems to have also adopted the practice of its OEM partners. Barely two years after it’s highly successful debut, the original Pixel and Pixel XL phones have been removed from the Google Store, perhaps making room for the recently spotted Pixel 3.
