“We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious!”
As I do more and more demos with my Windows 8 tablet, I literally hear these words coming from the audience.
This slide sums it all up:
I always start off by asking, “Who in the audience owns some type of tablet?”
Typically, about a third of the audience members respond by raising their hands.
I then ask the folks with their hands raised, “Do you also own some type of PC?”
Inevitably, they all answer “Yes.”
I ask them why they need both, and they usually say things like, “I just use my tablet for games, email, and to surf the web, but when I need to work on Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, I use my PC.”
I then show them a demo of Windows 8 on my Samsung Series 7 Slate.
