Update sent out for Microsoft Surface RT users

Just because the Microsoft Surface Pro tablets have been launched, it doesn't mean that the Redmond based manufacturer is giving up on its more traditional tablet, the Microsoft Surface RT; in fact, Microsoft is sending out an update that will repair a bug that would not let Wi-Fi work and would show "limited" access for the tablet...

I think Microsoft needs to send a refreshed model of the Surface Windows RT tablet with a 1.7 GHz quadcore snapdragon S4 (600) CPU instead of the 1.2 GHz quadcore Tegra 3....Not to say the Tegra 3 isn't bad, but the S4 is just an overal better chipset...

In a refresh of the device, I'd also like to see less hardware limitations...On the software front, I'd want the restrictions taken off of the device that limit the usabilty of RT.....Since I got mine, I've been pleased but.....I reach dead ends at every corner with it....

I tend to agree with you Birds. I like my RT, the hardware quality and the OS and the overall package. It works but it could be better.

What I would love to see in my next Windows tablet = stronger processing capabilities and a more unified Windows OS. I like having the apps but more utility still exists in having the desktop side, so I'd like to have the functionality of the desktop side in the modern UI form, for a superior experience in both functionality and user experience.

I might note that's where I think Microsoft is headed with Windows anyway, but it's not quite there yet. If you're listening Microsoft, make sure you keep INCREASING functionality while UNIFYING and SIMPLIFYING the experience. Integrate everything.

ZUNE 2.0.......major manufacturers like Samsung pulling out, expect Microsoft to cease production in a year or so

All I can say is BlueStacks App Player on Windows 8 RT and then it'd be way better.
