Two Microsoft Surface tablets were available for visitors to test

Microsoft plans on opening a large number of Microsoft Surface Experience Centers where visitors can get a hands-on experience with the Microsoft Surface tablet. Locations have opened in Australia, Germany, the U.K. and France and centers will open in the U.S. later. A visitor to one of the many Experience Centers in Berlin snapped some pictures and discussed his experience at the place.

The unnamed visitor went to the Experience Center at the Motel One in the Kant Strasse 10, near the Zoological Garden Berlin station. He noticed that there were only two units out in the open for people to use. Guests staying at the Motel One do have the option to rent a Microsoft Surface tablet.
 
The visitor liked the Microsoft Surface tablet, noting that it was heavier than it looked, although not more so than the competition. He also was pleased to see that the staff knew the difference between the Intel-powered Microsoft Surface 8 Pro and the Apple iPad/Android tablet feel of the Microsoft Surface RT.

"Since today in some German cities Microsoft's new tablet computer, the surface is presented. Here in Berlin, there are several places where you can take a look. I was at the Motel One in the Kant Strasse 10, right near the Zoological Garden Berlin station. The Experience Center is located in the entrance hall. Only 2 units to try out were available. Guests at the Motel One can also rent a surface and try to rest. Therefore, additional devices.

The tablet looks good and great is processed. The format may be a little getting used to. The weight is slightly larger than expected (although not more than others). It's been fun to use the Surface and the gestures you fast on it.

If you can live with Windows RT course everyone must decide for themselves, after all, you can only install programs from the store on it. The staff knew at least the difference between Windows 8 and RT, so that potential customers will be advised at least not wrong. You can buy the surface unfortunately only in the online store."-unnamed visitor to Microsoft Surface Experience Center

Why not ? Previous gen series 7 slate was great piece of hardware. I believe that S-Pen is going to work great with One Note.....
I also don't understand what does Surface Pro has that makes it special.

Good that they've set something up in Oz. Too bad the closest to my area is still quite far...

EVERYONE;
If you have an E-Mail Account that has the POP3 Format, then just be Aware that you will NOT BE ABLE TO GET YOUR E-MAIL on the Microsoft Surface RT Tablet at all.
