When you do the full review, it would be helpful to include a comparison with the iPad Air instead of just the Surface RT 2.

Could this have anything to do with the screen type? The 1020 has an AMOLED screen and the 1520 has an LCD screen.

Has Nokia announced a price? Will it be available for Friday's launch?

What does the new on-screen virtual keyboard look like? The PS3's virtual keyboard is the worst.

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 5:20pm

Agh! I just dropped my Lumia 900 and cracked the screen. Maybe I will get the 1520 after all. Still, I wish it was smaller 5-5.5" screen and AMOLED.

Also, keep in mind that the 7th generation isn't done yet. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo will keep selling their PS3, XBox 360 and Wii for at least a couple more years.

Regarding market...

It's in the article text, but it's missing in the list of systems and their sales.

I set up my Win8 PC a year ago. It's too late to change that now. Until MS fixes this issue, there's no way for me to upgrade to Win8.1 without reinstalling everything from scratch. Fortunately...

I can't upgrade to Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 won't install on systems that have their Users or Programs directories on a different drive than the OS.

What about IE11 for Windows 8.0?

Friday, November 1, 2013 - 8:45am

Huh? What? Are you honestly saying that standard definition DVDs look almost as good as 1080P Blurays? That's insane. The difference is immediate and obvious.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 2:12pm

Unfortunately, this is still a 3x heavier than the iPad Air. I'm not sure who would want this device beyond hard-core geeks who must possess as many gadgets as possible.

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 - 9:45pm

This makes perfect sense. After all, nobody even uses the desktop anymore and WinRT tablets are flying off the shelves.

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 1:45pm

I'm confused by the new Wireless Charging Plate DC-50. Shouldn't the 520 be compatible with existing charging plates? Why do we need another one? Or does the 1520 only work with the DC-50?

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 12:54pm

I was really excited by this device and was seriously thinking of replacing my 900 with this. However, I'm very disappointed that it's using an LCD instead of AMOLED. There's a huge difference...

Monday, October 21, 2013 - 9:00am

You know, I've been wondering, why doesn't MS just *always* offer recovery partitions for Windows online? It's going to require a valid registration key anyway, so why not just always make them...

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 1:27pm

Apparently, I'm not the only one experiencing this problem:

Any news on the "Sorry, it looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1" issue?

Friday, October 18, 2013 - 6:53pm

I'm getting the following error:

Can't update to Windows 8.1

Sorry, it looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1. This might be because the Users or Program Files folder is being...

Friday, October 18, 2013 - 8:10am

It looks like there's a serious flaw in the Windows 8.1 installation program. I have Windows and my applications installed on my C: drive (SSD) and my data on my D: drive (a traditional hard disk...

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 8:15pm

Damn, this is taking forever to download. Two hours and counting. Maybe I shouldn't have tried to upgrade 3 computers at the same time, LOL.

Monday, October 14, 2013 - 8:52pm

They should implement both ways to close an app.

Sunday, October 13, 2013 - 11:32am

This sounds cool, but the Share charm isn't compatible with Windows apps, only Metro apps, which unfortunately means that it's ultimately useless to most users.

Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 11:04am

If I had a dollar for every time I accidentally pressed the Search button, I could probably afford a new phone!

Tuesday, October 8, 2013 - 1:26pm

What about Windows Phone? Also, since WP8 uses the same NT kernel as Windows 8, I'd love to be able to remote desktop into my phone.

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 8:27am

I don't see why MS can't have both a Surface and Lumia line of devices. After all, Honda can sell Civics, Accords, Fits, etc..

Monday, September 30, 2013 - 9:29am

Much better than the dancing ads. I'm not sure why they're showing these ads now. Win8.1 doesn't come out for another 2-3 weeks. Anyone who sees this ad and then buys a Win8 device is going to...

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 12:41pm

Off the top of my head, I'd like a Start Menu, better task swapping, and a good text editor. It also needs to be thinner and lighter like the iPad.

Monday, September 23, 2013 - 6:29pm

I'm watching the presentation now. I'm struck by the tepid response by the audience. Microsoft makes a major announcement, and relatively few people clap. This has all the makings of yet...

Monday, September 16, 2013 - 3:41pm

Is it possible to tell Xbox music not to wipe our your existing tags and artwork? There should be a way to set it to a read-only mode.
