Surface Features Being Adopted By Competition - SteelCrysis - 09-30-2015

This is just funny. Now the iPad and the Google Pixel C are copying the Surface's keyboard with built-in kickstand. Big Grin

These kickstands are nothing new and AFAIK they have been around since before the Surface. I had an old Asus Transformer tablet that had a similar keyboard.

I think Google's new tablet looks pretty interesting. I think the iPad Pro is too big for most people and it's way too expensive. That being said, if you have to choose between the Macbook Air and the iPad Pro, most people would choose the iPad.

This is like saying Windows 10 ripped off Android because it uses icons.

The difference being Android didn't pioneer icons in mobile.
