Microsoft video shows how Redmond improved the Type Cover on the Microsoft Surface 2
The Microsoft Surface 2 is thinner and lighter than the original model and offers improved resolution. Microsoft also upgraded the silicon from the Tegra 3 used on the Surface RT to the Tegra 4 employed on the Surface 2.
The Microsoft Surface RT did not have what you would call a positive sales experience. Microsoft ended up having to take a $900 million charge for unsold units of the slate. Assuming that the Redmond based software giant learned its lesson from the poor experience it had with the first-gen slab, the Microsoft Surface 2 could be a marvelous turnaround story in 2013-2014.

I'd almost pick up a Nokia tab RT or not. I'm pretty interested in both the surface pro 2 and surface 2.

Chances are the Surface tabs are going to be a better choice than the Nokia tab RT for the money.

Microsoft had PhotoSynth before Android 4.2 came out.

They bragged last year about the build quality, and how the keyboard cover could sense 1000 different levels of pressure.
Either the last cover really sucked or MS is lying about how much better this one is.
But why didn't the first one sell to begin with? I doubt it was the keyboard cover.

Microsoft will not surrender? Come on!!! Windows RT is dead!!

its only dead to a person that doesn't own one or haven't used one in a very critical situation, trust me I'm not just saying that because I own an RT, I honestly think they had a very slow start because of the bad starting price point.

even at half the retail price offered to me by Microsoft I could not spend it due the lack of apps and codec.
Hope that would change in 2014.
