Sales are also much better than last year.

As per Chitika, the surface usage is growing and its almost closing in on Nexus tablets from Google.

http://chitika.com/insights/2013/surface-2-growth

Surface web usage is at 6.4% vs 8.2% for nexus (this is non-iPAD tablet share).

Remember, nexus tablets are much cheaper and consists of three models (nexus 7, nexus 7 2013, nexus 10).

Also, nexus 7 (2013) released much in 5 months back and original nexus also available 6 months earlier than surface RT.

Its not bad for surface when you consider that Surface costs ($350+) while you can get nexus for $230 and old nexus is available for around $120-$150.

Why would a surface tablet running full windows uniquely identify itself as to what model it runs? Full blown computers don't do that.

Willing to bet that 6.4 number is ALL the lousy Winrt tablets in existance.

Its predecessor still generated more interest than the original chromebook or motorola xoom/htc flyer ever did.

Folks I said it before and I will say it again do not put the Windows on Arms tablets down why should Apple Ipads and Android Tablets be the Only Tablets allowed to use non windows desktop Touch screen only APPS. Standard Windows X86 programs just will not run on mobile ARMS CPUS"S because they were designed to only run on Intel/AMD x86 CPU's Microsoft and it's X86 software Partners have rewrite thei X86r software to run on ARMS Mobile CPU's this will take time. folks lets be for real most People use their Tablet for
WIFI or 4G connected internet based Enterprise Business, Entertainment, shopping, News,
Facebook, Twitter, Educational information, Web Information searchs, you can do all these things on a Surface 2 or Nokia 2520 with ease. true The Windows on arms tablets need more apps do not worry more apps are coming to this platform. The windows 8.1 surface 2 and the Nokia 2520 are the best office Production work and small game player Tablets on the market check out you video's about the Windows Rt , Surface 2, Nokia 2520 gaming power with a standard Xbox hand held game controller it's exciting.
