Analysts to Discuss the Fate of Windows 8 in a World of Mobile Competition, Balanced by Tablets

October 11 2012

If analysts at Stamford, Conn.-based research firm Gartner, Inc., are on target, then Microsoft's two powerhouse products could fall out of favor in place of products that have integrated and/or adapted to the mobile revolution. Analysts will hash out this issue at the upcoming Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, which will take place October 21-25.

At the heart of the discussion are Microsoft's two biggest products - Windows and Office - and whether they've stayed relevant in a world where mobile device usage is on the upswing.
