Kraft Kennedy CTO Marcus Bluestein and I have written a piece about the Microsoft Surface Pro and what it means for lawyers, published today in Law Technology News.
The Surface Pro is interesting because it’s the first tablet that can truly claim to replace a laptop. There’s virtually no learning curve for new users because the Surface Pro runs Windows: all of your desktop applications work. The Surface Pro is also easy on IT, because it fits into and benefits from all of the management and security policies IT departments already set for Windows laptops.
As the article notes, the Surface Pro has its drawbacks, but it also has some features that are genuinely new in the tablet market.
