I dont think it's limited by geography. I am a UK based user.

This feature is actually built by a Spanish team so I doubt they would have the traditional US-only policy. Or as Paul would...

"Lumia 830" = typo ;)

Am glad it's not just me noticing the absence of surface at build !

On a completely unrelated note, I spotted this in the batch of updates yesterday - not sure what to make of it

I use a combination of zinio and pressreader.
I found the nook app appalling, at least for the newspaper content.

Without the music hub, how does WP8.1 handle standalone MP3s ? I mean MP3s you copy to the phone.
AFAIK XBox music forces you to login
Does that also mean that support for uploading...

This !

my experience of the touchpad on the type cover 2 is terrible, virtually useless. I had a touch cover v1 and it's clearly a huge step back. Am surprised I never saw complaints about this, is it...

Owner of original Surface Pro running 8.1 Enterprise, no sign of this update. Have already installed everything from Patch Tuesday - no System firmware update

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 19:01

I might not understand 100%, but since GDR2 you can download the songs from a playlist ; if some songs are on your device it's supposed to manage it and only download the missing ones

I havent face the 10h free listening limit lately. My win8 xbox music app doesnt have the "progress bar" in the settings anymore to show how far i am in my 10h allowance. I've been...

The original press release from lenovo said it would have 3G in certain markets only. No 4g.

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 22:54

Amazon UK has the miix2 listed in 32gb bluetooth only and 64gb 3g.
The 3g shows shipping in 1-2 months.

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - 16:33

Agree. A lot of the Surface line up is applesque anyway ...

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - 16:03

Wow USB 4.0 on the plugable docking station ? ;)

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 19:28

The bulk comes from the battery. If only the power cover had the bluetooth builtin ... that would be really awesome.
Could be deactivated when physically connected and automatically enabled...

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 22:10

Paul, are you also planning to review the similar lenovo miix2 8 ?

Friday, October 18, 2013 - 19:31

Ha ! Same thing for me ! :(

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 15:42

Turns out am wrong, see comment from @vvshorikov below.

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 14:07

Where did you see that ? Microsoft announced there is no new version of the SDK. The current API that allows this is only provides the following _connection settings_ options : Bluetooth, wifi,...

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 10:22

It's not pinnable to the start screen, and it's not available programmatically like the settings for WiFi, Flight mode and a few others are. So it's quite cumbersome to use :(

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 - 06:33

I'm confused with that. I thought I heard and read it will come with 4GB. It is indeed disappointing.
I'm also confused by the touch cover colors - is it coming only in black this time ?

Friday, September 6, 2013 - 11:54

At least Windows RT should be free, given the only apps you can have go through the MS store.
Shipping without Office, but make office available for a reasonable fee in the store.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - 06:18

Am I the only one to find it strange that the firmware updates are not available on 8.1 ?

Thursday, July 11, 2013 - 13:02

@pthurrott btw i spoke to a few WP guys at //build/, they blame the "delay" of the enthusiast / early adopter programme on the carriers again. They claimed the plan hasnt been ditched (yet?)

Thursday, July 11, 2013 - 13:00

Hold on, I must be missing something ... who gives a number 2 about 36 months support if carriers and OEM decide about update delivery ? Doesnt that just completely voids the point ?

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 08:11

yes ! mine doesnt even see some networks that my surface pro reports as 3 bars ... pretty pathetic

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 18:02

But is it fast now ? On my clovertrail device, with fiber optic broadband, it takes ages to do anything in the store ... launch, open the list of updates, browse a category ... the slowest app of...

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 13:02

This look and feel is a complete departure from what I would call the "standard metro/modern" UI design. They could have fixed the current one, instead they decide to restart from scratch one more...

Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 06:36

AKA Windows Server "Blue" - announced this week at TechEd.

Monday, May 20, 2013 - 17:57

And it still doesnt work properly on the Clovertrail devices ...
