OEMs May Be Mad Over Surface, Microsoft Says

As a public company, you have to come clean with Wall Street. Otherwise there are thousands of regulators just itching to set you straight.

So it's no wonder that Microsoft in a recent SEC filing said that OEM partners, who will soon compete with the Microsoft Surface, may not be completely happy, "which may affect their commitment to our platform," the company wrote.

Another problem for Microsoft is the current lack of Metro apps compared to the iOS or Android platforms, though a few million hardware units shipped ought to fix that, tout de suite.
