As Captain Obvious from NCIS pointed out:
- That's not Major Announcement, it's either Major Disappointment or Major Fail. We'll have to wait for the DNA results, just to be sure.
Judging from the refrigeration grille, I'd say it's Major Fail.
Refrigeration grille -> heat
Heat -> high power consumption
High power consumption -> low autonomy
The stand is simply appalling. As someone said over the Internet, looks like a cheap digital photo frame. Besides, it has a major design fault: the tilt is fixed, you can't adjust it to face you, you'll have to adjust you to face it.

Back to the refrigeration grille. Microsoft said that this grille had an intelligent design, so you could never block it with your hands. This was clearly a reference to Apple iPhone antenna design problem. But Microsoft would have done better not to mention this grille.
The grille is a major issue. By making reference to the grille, we now know that the device heats to a point that it needs refrigeration. I've already addressed the autonomy problem, but there is more to it: comfort. Will the user be comfortable using it? Won't the heat make it uncomfortable to held and use?
As I said (Captain Obvious), we'll have to wait for the DNA results.
Time will tell.
But I'm betting that the corpse belongs to Major Fail.
