Some of you might consider it an upside-down world that sees a high-profile Microsoft leader interviewed and praises the company's reputable, successful hardware, at a time when the company is valued at $ 790 billion compared to the long-standing competitor Apple $ 778 billion. All in all, Microsoft has probably had a strong 2018 and continued to emerge as a rebuilding player in technology, and it is partly thanks to the company focusing on areas where it believes the company excels, as in work and productivity.
Along these lines comes Panos Panay, Microsoft's chief product officer, who dropped a couple of tips on what to do in a new interview with the top newspaper in Ireland, Irish Independent . [1
Does this signal mean that Microsoft is moving its surface line beyond a focus At work and into the consumer committee, Panos is asked? Not necessarily he reacts. Think about it, he continues – many people use headphones to block noise and work in an office, in cafes, in trains, and elsewhere.
As a natural questioner, the questioner asks, okay, if you think about mixing the work and the personal in that way, by bringing a typical personal product such as that for work, in which other ways you think the same way to expand the surface?
While he acknowledges that he obviously cannot post a product roadmap, here is Pano's answer:
"Are we done with experiences for people at work and at home? The answer is yes. Then you will see new form factors that can Do it, or do you need it? The answer is absolutely, and that's how it comes together. For me, work and home are like life, whether the unit is in the kitchen at home, in the home office, in the workplace or on your body. So yes, you want to see more products that focus on where our customers are going to be. "
Does that mean that we are finally going to take our hands on a rocky surface phone, a collapsible device or something completely new, perhaps it masks one phone and a PC together? We've seen a contraction all over the world in PC and tablet sales, so it will certainly be interesting to see what Microsoft boils up to here, given that it has been largely successful on the surface so far.
