0. phoneArena 04 Sep 2013, 07:32 posted on

First thing that Microsoft has done with the sequel to the Microsoft Surface RT 2 is to remove the "RT". According to a published report on Wednesday out of Italy, the slate will now be known as the Microsoft Surface 2; we're waiting for the day when a smartphone or tablet manufacturer pulls a Prince and names a new device "!"...

Oh stop the constant jabbing dude..
I do wonder why they chose to use that resolution though.. I think that if its software related then they need to hold out until gdr3 to release it. I hope they make it out of the same premium materials as the last.

I agree. I really don't get why MS simply does not deliver the basics. I know that Surface is not based on WP8 but Windows 8.1. Still, this does not justify the lack of high resolution displays. At least they get it done for WP8 now.

Stop your whining. The reason ms gets away with producing bs products is because of stupid consumers like you. The specs are horrible 4 a device in this price range. Just having a bastard version of windows isn't worth the premium price

WRONG , the first leaks of the Nokia tablet on that benchmark also had that same resolution, and now it has been announced it has 1920*1080.

most likely is some kind of bug on that benchmark that recognizes 1371 x 771 instead of 1920*1080...

They are gonna have to be very price conscious when releasing their new tab. Ultra high res displays cost ultra high dollars. I'm sure they're gonna wanna keep this second helping of Surface as close to 300 bucks as possible. Without losing their shirts again.

android tabs with high res displays are available around the same price as surface.. then why not surface have a high res display...
at this stage microsoft has to concentrate on establishing itself as a good alternative to android and apple..
then they can think of making money..
why cant they copy google's nexus program and come up with their own..

Correct. Their fatal mistake with the last Surface is the Apple-esque price. They should strive for the cost to be similar to the Nexus line instead of Apple.

Nexus pricing isn't going to happen. The manufacturer agrees to partner with Google knowing that they're getting margins only rivaling the prebuilt PC market (hint: low low low)

I'm sure they'll bring it down competitively, but they can't sell it -that- low.

It's OK, its Still HD. I think Tegra 4 is also getting into action with MS.

I see another donation to the education system again.

Not that its a bad thing, if they donated while still new they'd boost new young buyers interest, possibly.

I think it has something to do with idiot consumers who except whatever crap products ms puts out & get mad at anyone who calls them on it
