Despite the success Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has had with the gaming industry, the company has a long way to go in other areas, namely the mobile industry.

Information Week recently shared their thoughts on how Microsoft can change in 2013 and offered six suggestion to start with. Such suggestions included offering users a choice of either Metro Tiles or the Windows Explorer, the latter of which would give Microsoft users something they’re more comfortable with. The second would be to reprice the Surface to about $100 less than it’s current tablet and thus make it more affordable to Microsoft’s target customers.

The article also suggests that Microsoft branch out and create more services, enhance their current cloud service Azure, build out on big data, and add XBox  services to their line mobile products.

Fans will most likely have to wait until the big unveiling, unless Microsoft plans to introduce the next generation game console prior to the event. With just 159 days left, it’s anyone’s guess as to what Microsoft has in store for everyone later on this year.
