Microsoft Corporation (MSFT), Apple Inc. (AAPL), Google Inc (GOOG) and The iPad Mini’s Latest Challenger

Early versions of the Surface don’t need to be perfect; they need to exist. They need to give the company a chance to perfect Windows in a new form factor and give it a chance to allow Microsoft to transform the tablet from the fun toys that Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) sell, to business machines that Microsoft is known to support. Understanding the barrage of “Fortune 500 companies use iPads” that is coming, I believe Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is aiming at this market in a quiet and astute way that warrants keeping the stock in your portfolio.
