Microsoft made a few huge announcements yesterday, primary of which was the introduction of Windows 10. One huge feature stood out for us, the fact that Windows 10 will work across all of your available platforms, from the PC to your tablet, and even on your phone.
Microsoft has been struggling a bit in playing catch up with the leading mobile hardware and software vendors around the globe.

Recent price breakthroughs in Intel-based tablets and special offers from Microsoft have produced a slew of great tablet deals at $100-$200 for full-fledged Windows 8.1 tablets in the 7- to 8-inch display range.
There are some interesting advantages to these new tablets for businesses and enterprises looking to mobilize their workforce beyond just the low price, though that’s a significant benefit. For example, not only is say a Toshiba Encore Mini WT7 Signature Edition tablet a steal at [...]
Not that Apple ever was seriously threatened, but the second quarter saw Android take two percentage points from iOS for a 32% share of enterprise activations as ranked by Good Technology’s Good Mobility Index. In its newest report released today, Android’s share stands at 29% for the third quarter, while iOS stands at 69%, up from 67% in Q2.
