Specs for Microsoft Surface RT 2 and Surface Pro 2 rumored

0. phoneArena 30 Nov 2012, 05:49 posted on

Although the Microsoft Surface RT is still a newcomer to the tablet scene, while the Pro Surface model is yet to be released, their maker is said to be working on their successors already, if a recent rumor is to be believed. Now, before you ignore this post in disbelief, allow us to point out that the source of the said rumor is the (usually) well-informed MS_Nerd...

nope but seeing as you think i do then explain because last time i checked there are android tablets too which this would be going against, so saying the war against apple is stupid. plus shows how obsessed you lot are

second its not a war, and none of us are even a part of it. why are we the customers taking sides and acting like we are involved in those higher decisions.

anyway go on then explain why its only against apple? and why its a war

well this is about tablets, and no offence to tablets but for the foreseeable future tablets have a way to go to be considered replavements for a full pc.

if this was about the whole computer industry i wouldnt of brought up android as its got no chance. just saying this is about tablets

While I agree that this is about tablets, and it will.be a while for computer-OS (versus mobile-OS) tablets to replace most desktops, these will be a popular option because it is what the new version if the OS is designed for. Prices come down, and consumers will opt for a touch screen and its versatility (especially if undockable and portable) instead of having to have a designated computer space.

He/she did not say "only"; they were both in competition with each other, and "war", metamorphically meaning masses of products against masses of products.

That is why.

- Surface Phone (Rumored)
- Windows Phone 8
- Windows Phone 8 Apollo+ (Rumored)
- Windows Phone 7.8
- Windows Phone 7.x (Rumored)

They already have set themselves at tremendous speed!

I just use real and usable tech products right now, not just rumors.
I use Google and Apple products, because both sides offers me real solutions, in the case of Apple a perfect and highly enriched apps ecosystem.
And Google offers me usefull services supported for a bussiness model that bring the users lower prices for top of the line hardware and software.

That is a true is not a lie, you Microsoft Fanboy..

Haha speaking of fanboyism... You say that Google already offers everything to you. Can it offer full computing experience like Surface Pro? And Pro isn't a rumor, it's been officially announced. WP8 is beautiful and is positioned at right middle position between Android and iOS. App store isn't a day's or week's work. It matures, slowly. Just tell me how large were play store or App store within an year they launched? If you assume that App stores can offer millions app in the first year then you are being narrow minded.

Thats the problem, the masses does not needs "Full Computing Experience" right now, they just need "Simplified Computing Experience", and that is that microsoft don't offers with W8, more than 60% that have used W8 says that it's less easy to use than W7 and this is a deal braker, just try to put your mother to use W8 and you will see.

Just look at the low sales on W8 and the Surface, they are speaking by themself..!

he didnt ask you what you think the masses needs. thats your opinion. you are not qualified to make everyone elses decision. he asked you can google offer a full computing experience? the reason you didnt answer the question is because the answer is no. you do alot of negative commenting on microsoft articles. thats not an opinion, thats a fact. and i would like to know where "more than 60% that have w8 say that it's less easy to use than w7" article is at? if you're going to throw out numbers please make yourself credible by backing it up. you dont back up anything you say. you just spew out crap hoping anyone that reads what you say will take it as fact. sounds like you've been paying alot of attention to apple's marketing.

Ask on Bing and you will see the response, many surveys from many sources said that, User Experience on W8 is a really painful..

haha microsoft fanboy, where you getting that from? unlike you my comment wasnt full of one sided fanboy crap mate

second every company has rumors about upcoming products real question is why would you come onto an article about rumors if your not interested in them?

your trolling like most and been terrible at it. like said before people knock wp8 for lack of apps, then suprisingly when asked if loads of apps are important they say no. so you work that out fanboy troll.

your bit about google offering low prices on top hardware.........errm the n4 is obvioulsy what your getting at which has only just been released plus its not optimised so the hardware isnt used to the fullest.

lastly though this line

''That is a true is not a lie, you Microsoft Fanboy..''

wheres the lies? are you classing rumors as lies now, there rumors, most of the time they just give a glimpse at what might be coming our way.

you need to learn a few things before you try to troll. go back to school child

OMG.. your words sounds some inspired, but you are expending so much time responding to troll lies, maybe you are not so smart than you think, maybe you must be productive and go and enjoy your Nokia 920, that's your world..

The True is hard to accept..!!

Wow I'm really excited now. Haswell, Temash chips and a new Qualcomm monster on surface devices! Everything is next-gen.
I am really waiting to get hold of Surface Pro, but now I can wait a little longer. Intel processors are s**t when it comes to graphics. I prefer AMD much more because their Integrated graphics is much, much superior. I bet MS is ditching intel only for the graphics part.

8.6" will put it in the league of the now extinct Galaxy Tab 8.9

I think Microsoft will have AMD chips on the surface Pro to lower the cost of the Surface Pro tablet PC line. Intel CPU chips are good but Intel charges an arm and a leg for them

Microsoft is really positioning its self to be secure in the future. Microsoft is definitely listening to what the "CUSTOMER!" wants and not what they think they want. I agree with chaoticrazor that we as customers get so passionate about technology; we as customers start to act like decision makers when all we do is buy the product. Put simply "different strokes for different folks". I'm not gonna sit here and hate on apple because they do put out a good product. Alas my personal choice is Windows Phone then android however thats my choice and my right as a consumer.

As far as the rumors regarding second gen surfaces and stuff. It all sounds good to me. I would definitely buy one.

i love this rumors!! it urges me to read and read more!! like drugs!! but reading!

but why 8.6? 8.9 or 9" would be better size! i saw a lot of tablet with tat size, and its just perfect! not too small and not too big!!!and now they'll use s4 pro? which will be kinda outdated if they release it on q3 or q4 and will not have the "wow" factor? but still good to here that! but hoping tegra 4 as well!

and the surface pro 2's 11.6" is kinda huge! and again, will be odd carrying a huge tablet, and odd reading it portrait! and why ditch intel chips? maybe for cheaper pure PC tablet? that is nice!! really nice!!!

and looking forward for surface book!! but still hoping surface phone!

Surface computers are at this time has a 16 by 9 shaped screen I hope that Microsoft comes out with a 4 by 3 shaped 10 inch screen Surface computer because most People find them easier to hold to read documents or E books than a 16 by 9 screen. that way Microsoft will have tablets that work for everybody. the Movie buffs would buy a MS 16 by 9 "Surface Pro" for movies and the E reader crowd would buy a 10 inch 4 by 3 "Surface" windows 8 computer
