OK, so we have all seen the photos of the new MS Surface device. To be honest I think I might be one of the few people who isn't impressed. Not so much by the specs which seem reasonable or the Windows cross platform support which seems really good but the form factor.
My thinking is a follows, a tablet is a device which you hold and view or hold with one hand and operate with the other, it is mainly for content consumption as it goes with this Surface seems fine. The way they have added a keyboard and stand, however, means that if you want to use it as for typing or laptopish tasks you need a desk or table to put it on and you can't pick it up without easily as you would do with a conventional laptop. This would be all well and good except you can't use it type out an email on bed or on the couch easily, you also couldn't prop it on your knees to use the keyboard. To me this really limits the appeal as it limits how I can use the device.
My hope is the new Asus Transformer, TF300t, gets a Win8RT edition when Win8 is released as this would be my tablet of choice. As an added bonus you get the extra battery life.
Mind you I wonder what Nokia have up the sleeve, eh?
What do you think of Surface or possible Win8 tablets?
