HP exec: Microsoft Surface is "slow" and "kludgey"

HP exec disses Microsoft's Surface, dubs it as "slow" and "kludgey"

During an interview with IDG, HP's PC business chief, Todd Bradley, had a few not-so-kind words for Microsoft's Surface tablet. Bradley said that Surface is "slow" and "kludgey", adding that he doesn't even consider Surface as competition to HP.

Considering HP's problems over the last year, and the fact that they don't even have a tablet on the market, that's some very strong opinion being pushed into the world. But, Bradley was the CEO of PalmOne before joining HP in 2005, but considering the failure that HP had in the tablet world, Bradley's words are very hollow.

 

HP's TouchPad complete disaster in 2011 saw the company avoid the consumer tablet market completely, and according to Bradley, HP won't look into the tablet space until 2013:

 

We're not entering the consumer tablet fray any time soon. We'll be doing something next year, but you won't see a consumer tablet from HP before Christmas.

 

I will now pin all hopes on HP having a much better tablet than Microsoft's Surface, which sells more than MS did, and is the opposite of "slow" and "kludgey". If not, be prepared to eat those words, Mr Todd Bradley.
