Poll: 50% expect Microsoft Surface to beat the iPad

PC Advisor readers predict end of Apple iPad's dominance of tablet space

More than 60 percent of the respondents to a poll by technology website PC Advisor believe the iPad's days as the dominant tablet are numbered, with the majority of these predicting that the Microsoft Surface can beat Apple's all-conquering device.

Asked 'Can Microsoft's Surface tablet beat Apple's iPad?', 23 percent of the 1,868 voters answered 'Yes, eventually all Apple innovations are overtaken', and 27 percent ticked 'Yes, Surface looks fantastic', for a neat total of 50 percent in the Microsoft camp.

A further 11 percent believed Android would be the iPad killer.

A loyal 29 percent weren't having any of all this, however, voting for the answer 'No, Apple iPad is too dominant', and 9 percent of respondents didn't know.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
