I really can't see what you can't do on a 5'' phone that you can on 7''. Comics on a 10'' tablet was pretty good but you still too small to display whole pages. 12'' or 13'' probably could do it.
I'm actually waiting for a big color tablet with e-ink instead of a LCD, now that would be freaking perfect for books and comics.
More RAM and a better processor, which entails almost every single hardware update ever, for some reason paints a lackluster picture when Microsoft is behind it.
No, it seems lackluster because ram and processing power are far from the main problems the surface has. The main problem being probably price and lack of anything that makes it stand out on a market tha already have a lot of options. Nobody bought the first version of Surface RT and if all the new features are more RAM and processing power they probably won't buy the second that's the point of all comments that are bashing it.
It's one thing when the topic specifically discusses Microsoft's missteps
Yes and this seem to be yet another mistep.
Different needs for different people. I actually can't find a reason for a tablet smaller than 10' since a smartphone can already cover this kind of usage.
I don't need a geology degree
Strangely I feel like trusting the judgement of someone who has. Stupid right?
I'm also very carefull and wait to see if anyone will make good use of them but this one in particular seems to have much more potential than most gimmics.
Having said that this is a microsoft product and I won't play a xbox even if people paid me to do so. The only good thing out of it will probably be the youtube experimentation videos just like with kinectic.
Also, the Oculus rift will render it obsolete anyway.
Oh my god you're right, they are giving everyone a quite easy way to shut off all xboxes around the world. Oh god this will be glorious, I think I just learned to stop worrying and love the DRM.
Since the it's the xbox we're talking about I feel the need to add: the station only broadcasts nazi propaganda.
