All this Windows Metro media coverage should give Windows Phone a huge mindshare boost
Tech blogs now crave Ms news to see what's next and to report on any "Surface" news. Now this coupled with the upcoming preview of Windows Phone 8 Apollo should give Windows Phone far more attention and mind-share. Hell if my local city news site took out the main header to announce Windows Surface means everyone's watching now.
Hell on engadget there's like 4 Ms threads all going over 1.5k
I believe because of the successful and enticing presentation of Surface today tenfolds more will pay attention to the Windows 8 Apollo announcement next week. Watch as Techblog sites also give it better coverage and more articles.
