Microsoft to update its Surface and Pro tablets today

Owners of Microsoft Surface 2, Surface Pro, and Surface 2 Pro tablets should be receiving firmware updates today. What's on the menu? First, all three of them will be made to work with the new $200 Surface Power Cover accessory, which went up for pre-order yesterday. Also, the trio will receive improved multi-touch support when using the Touch and Type Covers' touch-pads.

As for each tablet's respective updates, the Surface 2 will respond better to being powered up from sleep mode. It will also have undisclosed stability and experience improvements. The Surface Pro and Pro 2 will have some wireless connectivity issues resolved, as well as better Miracast support. The Surface Pro 2 alone will receive the option of daisy chaining monitors through DisplayPort 1.2, as well as improved BitLocker usage - you will be able to input your PIN from the Surface cover.

Microsoft needs to make a plastic body cheaper version of the "Surface Pro 2 with 4G to make this line of Microsoft tablets sell better. The Windows on ARMS CPU "OS" Surface 2
Tablets and the Nokia 2520 tablets need more apps and a 'Blue Stacks" type app to help Them run Google play store Apps and the thousands of other third party Android apps. Microsoft's great soft ware team should create an app to enable Google Play Apps and third party Android app play on the Nokia 2520 and The Surface 2 tablets. this app would make them super tablets

Nice! Hope this takes care of the wifi connection issue I've been noticing lately on my original Surface Pro. I'd have to disconnect from my wifi network and reconnect in order for the wifi to work correctly.
