In the video below, Motley Fool analysts Austin Smith and Charly Travers discuss the opportunities that Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT ) offers investors, and what may be the tech giant's most underappreciated weapon -- the one in your living room. That's right: Xbox.
Xbox, which sold like hotcakes during last year's holiday season, has become more than just a video gaming system. It is a content aggregation system, and more people are using it to view movies and other media, as Charly explains. With investors' focus trained more on the forthcoming Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) TV, this "sleeper opportunity" could serve as a big catalyst for Microsoft in the years to come.
The Xbox system isn't the only catalyst for investors to consider. Although the company has so far failed to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade, the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, has the company looking to make a splash in this booming market. In this brand-new premium report on Microsoft, our analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, the challenges are many.
