Over 1,400 developers, managers, and IT execs responded and shared their insights on a variety of topics, including Windows Phone 8, Apple’s iOS 6, and the challenges of IT in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world.
This week, we’ve been putting both the iPad gen 4 and the Microsoft Surface tablet through their paces to see how they stack up as HTML5 platforms.
