I'm currently here at MWC and I have to say Microsoft's showing is pretty awesome, they have a great stand/conference area and provided us with free Ethernet access on Monday :)

But what has been really cool is the amount of SP3's out in the wild here! I have mine here obviously but seeing so many other journalists, bloggers, business deal guys and others with them here is a really good sign. They are still beaten by the amount of Macbooks I've seen, but the SP3 has a really good showing here and frankly deserves the award, it has been a great tool here and probably my first real use of travel with it!

Don't know which other awards will be handed out, but as I see the SP3 more as a Notebook replacement instead of a Tablet replacement I'm hoping somekind of notebook award will be won as wel. I think tablet isn't really doing the surface any justice. what's actually the difference in definition between those two?

Offtopic: is it known where MWC will be organized in the next years?
