Although Microsoft and Intel (who used to dominate the consumer electronics industry) are still up and running, emerging markets are being taken over by new leaders. Among these leaders are Apple, Google, and ARM, all of which have focused heavily on the tablet market, and that focus seems to be paying off.
By choosing to not adjust itself to the changes in the market, Microsoft has experienced numerous financial issues. Without a doubt, its overall failure with the Surface tablets is the most upfront example of Microsoft's inability to maintain its place as a market leader, especially when it comes to tablets.
With the old powerhouses losing their control, Apple, Google, and ARM have taken over in a fierce battle to control the tablet market.
Apple, Nokia, and Microsoft will all be revealing their new tablets tomorrow but the public seems to only care about Apple's. First of all, this is partly due to the fact that Nokia and Microsoft are practically the same company, but more important, people care about iPads and Android tablets, not the sub-par alternatives offered up by Microsoft.
