Microsoft gifts full-time employees with Surface tablets, Windows 8 phones and PCs

 

Reprising a Windows Phone 7 giveaway from back in 2010, Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer announced at the company's annual event that all 90,000 or so full-time employees are getting a taste of its latest hardware. That's one Surface for Windows RT tablet and Windows Phone 8 phone (last time around these came with two year contracts)

in late December, along with a new touch compatible office computer running Windows 8, presumably arriving sooner. Forbesindicates those PCs can be a desktop, laptop, ultrabook or tablet, and engadget.com has a pic of one employee's new Lenovo-built slate running Windows 8 on a Core i7 CPU with 8GB of RAM. Pulling an Oprah, again, isn't just one way to improve employee morale, it also ensures everyone's familiar with the new products as they roll out and are ready to tell people about them.

Will that provide the necessary bump to catch up with the competition from Apple and Google? Comment below!

Provided each employee given the device, is obliged to sign an "act of telling everybody around how good the device is and non disclosure of how bad it is in fact". They (the employees) should demand a better salary on the grounds of additional hard (unhealthy) labour. :)

the best way to get people to buy windows 8 is to get a high shool girl hi and put her on a Windows comershal about how a mac ate her paper.

 

Bravo! Well played, sir. Well played.

I dunno guys. I came from their camp and defected a few years ago when Hackintosh "surfaced" because I hated their design philosophy so much, even in the 8 reincarnation. I always thought Windows8 is MS reckoning of how far behind the curve they are so they just start from the mobile device platform and scale up to desktop, sort of like Android. Yet when testing W8, I felt some feature might be feel right on a mobile device. I read a recent review of the Surface by Anandtech, in which Anand gave an honest opinion about the build quality of the tablet and the fluidity of the OS. For those Apple haters out there, and I know quite a few, this may present an alternative to plasticky Android tablets whose functional purposes are to steer people away from pricey iPads. For what it's worth, W8 may find a natural habitat from which to grow, not that I want one anyway. Wish you the best luck MS because I won't come back.

lol... Windows 8 is just the latest blunder in the series.

Just look on the internet for photo's of Ballmer almost crying...

He isn't pleased Windows 8 is not very popular and there are almost no sales comparing to Windows 7.

Who wants that new ugly UI of Windows 8 anyway...

I'm pleased ;-)

I don't even think giving me free hardware would be enough to get me to use Windows 8. I just do not like the way they have changed how you do a lot of things. The only thing that would save it for me is if I were to go get one of those programs that allows you to change it back to the traditional desktop with start menu and all. I tried playing with that new UI and, while it was kinda neat at first, it quickly got on my nerves.
