Using Office on an iPad with a cover/stand and a keyboard just highlights how well Surface is designed. Win RT tablet owners are really not missing much until MS releases Metro-style Office...

I love Evernote but it is high time they get some serious competition.

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 - 7:42pm

Win 8 is definitely a superior tablet OS in many ways. Even without must-have Office once you get used to snap, app switching and desktop-class browser it is hard to go back to other tablets. I...

This is an amazing example of competition and free market wonders. Guess that even Milton Friedman would be stunned if he could see it. In August 2009, I got a low-end 3.1 pound, 11.6" Acer for $...

Yea, it is clear that Window is not a major platform anymore. Major platform players (Google, Amazon) do their best to annoy their customers using Windows, and other non-platform players (e.g....

I find it interesting when people compare Surface 2 to Asus T100. The former is a piece of art which replaces tablet and notebook in an unbelievably thin and light package, while Asus T100 is an...

Touch Cover is tinner, lighter, washable and better for folding below the stand with keys facing downwards. Hope I will get used to the typing experience. It seemed fine in my limited tests in a...

I am getting Surface 2. From the tablet perspective I will miss offline notebooks and attachment syncing in Evernote and Feedly, hope for a short time until they are released. From the PC...

"Surface 2 - RAM: 2 GB". This is today's most disappointing news. Guess 2 GB is sufficient in some use scenarios, but they should not be saving pennies on such an important component. Huh, even...

IMO the price of 32GB version of Surface 2 is fine, but charging $100 for additional 32GB of storage is ridiculous. I know everybody likes fat margins but selling something that costs $20 for $100...

That was my opinion too until I saw Surface next to other tablets. It is not comparable - its stand and covers are just brilliant. I hoped that MS would release Atom-based Surface but as time...

„And one of Microsoft's key goals with both Windows 8 and Surface is to raise that average selling price…” Sure it is a way more fan to be in a high-margin than in a low margin business. Just ask...

I hope Win RT tablets will have comparable specs to latest and greatest Android tablets (hello new Nexus 10). The specs of this tablet are a bit encouraging in that regard, at least it has the...

Google is obviously affraid of another major mobile platform otherwise they would make sure that their customers on any platform have the best experience in using their services. Similarly,...

The bundling strategy really limits competition and the authorities are right to fight against it. Microsoft does not want to release full Office for Android, and in turn Google makes sure that...

Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 7:00am

Let's hope new Surfaces and other new generation devices, maybe even Bay Trail-based devices, will be released on that day. I badly want to replace my 4-year old notebook

Monday, August 12, 2013 - 3:14pm

Microsoft faces a huge competetive challange that has become a life threatening because of its own inaction. The same applies to Intel. Android has become a new Windows, i.e. the most popular OS...

It takes just a small effort to download the apk and sideload it on a tablet. I installed in on my Nook HD+ and it works as expected. Those not in the US may make use of this tip too.

Thursday, August 1, 2013 - 3:33pm

Google did it again. They released a superior product at a very competitive price. No wonder they are winning the market share. And no wonder developers are paying attention. Just look at, say,...

Sunday, July 14, 2013 - 1:11pm

I like the form factor, the integrated stand, the keyboard covers soooo much, but must have x86 compatibility on a laptop replacement. So RT is ruled out, and Pro is already outdated. Come on...

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 10:26am

I personally do not care about Outlook but I am glad that MS is moving to make RT platform more appealing. Hope that their next move will be to add the macro functionality to Office RT so the x86...

Sunday, June 16, 2013 - 9:11am

Any effect of these ads dissappear when an average customer goes into a store and see the tablets. ipad's screen is beyond beautiful while the xps looks like it should be cheaper. Another major...

Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 6:37pm

It is interesting that MS is using Asus VivoTab instead of its own Surface RT in this ad. Guess there is no better proof that Surface RT is a failure. Hope they will stick to x86 processors for 10...

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 6:23pm

Oh, MS please, please, please return the start button. I personally do not care about it. I guess it will be used by 2% users so it will not change anything, but it will finally save the world...

Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 11:15am

I am pretty sure that MS is well positioned to become a major player in the tablet market. They have put everything together on their part and when Intel releases Haswell and Bay Trail Atom...

Friday, March 22, 2013 - 8:12pm

"Windows RT is the future not the present". No rush, no need to play the best card (i.e. x86 compatibility), Microsoft has time because they are an undisputed market leader. Other PC vendors also...

Saturday, March 16, 2013 - 6:08am

I guess the Wintel coalition has messed with its karma a bit too much over previous decades, and they are now paying the price. It seems that both companies still do not get it. Microsoft pushes...

Friday, February 15, 2013 - 8:07am

It is time to replace my $400 11.6 notebook, but RT can not replace it because it is x86 incompatible. Pro is too expensive for power I do not need in a mobile device, but not powerful enough to...

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 6:57pm

It seems that prices of all new Win 8 convertibles are a way to high. Look at Acer Iconia w510 for example, $500 for 32GB + $100 for additional $32GB + $150 for the keyboard dock.. And that for an...

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 6:33pm

No company should voluntarily pull a winning product from a major market. If Microsoft does not enter the iOS productivity suite market other viable alternative will emerge in time. And once they...
