Microsoft Surface 2 event liveblog
We’ve been hearing whispers about Microsoft polishing a lot of the rough spec edges and introducing an even better, adjustable kickstand with the second-gen Surface tablets. Have we approached the times of fanless Core-based Windows 8 tablets? And is Windows RT now ready for prime time?
These are two of the questions we expect Microsoft’s Surface team led by Panos Panay to answer today. We’ll be covering the event live as it happens and rushing to the demonstration areas to bring you a more intimate look at the devices right away. There will be no Microsoft Surface 2 event livestream, but instead of a stream you can tune into out live blog right here.

Not really excited for MS but I'm curious to see what they bring to the table.

hope MS gain some sense from last year's low sales and price, spec surface right.

The specs in the Surface pro and rt were fine... in my opinion they did 2 things wrong. The first would be failure to communicate why RT would be worth it to them. Second would be price.
The pricing even then wasn't too bad, it was more the fact that they failed to explain the value proposition more clearly. Just like they did with the Xbox One. Minus the touch covers. $100 for that is just sinful lol.

That's a really early start, not that I mind.

Hopefully they buried WindowsRT and gave improvements to Windows8!

MS won't ditch Windows RT...they might merge it with Windows Phone...at sometime in future.

20% boost in cpu performance and 50% boost in graphic is a bit underwhelming, no?
