The Next Challenge for This Tech Giant

The following video is from this week's Motley Fool Money radio show, with Chris Hill joined by Charly Travers, James Early, and Jason Moser. The big news in technology stocks this week was Microsoft's unveiling of its Surface tablet. Will it be a big enough hit to put a dent in the dominant market share of Apple's iPad? In this segment, the guys analyze the competitive landscape in the tablet space, the importance of the business enterprise market for Microsoft, and why the Surface has to be priced below the iPad.
