I've said for awhile now that Microsoft needed to get a tablet out sooner than later (i.e. using WP7 instead of W8) because the enterprise wasn't going to sit around and wait. iPads and other tablets would trickle in and enterprise customers would start finding ways to use them. I'm sure we've all seen plenty of example of restaurants, concierges, and small mom & pop businesses using iPhones, iPods, and tablets for POS and hospitality, etc. My Android app customers are small to mid-size businesses. It was only a matter of time before enterprises got past the IT naysayers and starting using them to solve problems. None of this should come to any surprise to Microsoft and the W8 team if a nit-wit like me could see this coming. At this point I think they can only hope their bet on W8 pays off because it's way too late to change strategies now unless that new strategy is a game changer like the original iPhone (and I just don't think Microsoft has that in them).
