Last year more Smartphones were sold than PC’s, and tablet sales are catching up fast.
For Microsoft, having the same look and feel across your desktop, tablet and phone will help them play catch-up in the smartphone and tablet market.
But what does this mean for users that just want to easily use their computer whether a desktop, tablet or phone? Ideally, it means that once you have mastered Windows 8 it will be easier to do the same on whatever device you are using. For example, Outlook will look the same, and you can access your documents on all your computers.
However, mastering Windows 8 will take time, both getting used to starting without a “Start” button and realizing the benefit of being able to work across your desktop, phone and tablet with the same documents.
