Hi guys,

I am looking to launch tablets into the business and I require them to be able to run flash or HTML5 flawlessly like on desktop.

Will the Microsoft Surface RT be able to handle these requirements using the stock IE?

I've read some conflicting information online and would like a some kind of confirmation.

yes it does

IE10 HTML5 support works great too

Internet Explorer 10 in Windows RT to enable Flash content to run by default

Is it a public URL, I could try it out for you

As long as the Surface RT runs flash websites as per the desktop version, then I would be happy.

Have you noticed anything you couldn't do so far on the RT when it comes to web browsing or entering data into online forms?

I don't recall visiting any sites that didn't work for me on the RT.

I've got a Surface RT here for a review, and flash does work (watched a clip with flash last night..). One major (could be a minor problem for you though..) but not many full and original applications can run on the RT.. e.g Chrome browser and the full version of TeamViewer..(there is a 'RT' version but it doesn't have a bit of the "useful" features on it.)

Thanks guys. Not too fussed about the other apps, as long as the standard IE runs flash fine :)

I am thinking about getting one myself personally. Are you guys reaching 8 or 9 hours battery life?

yes I'm getting that sort of battery life on my Surface RT

obviously also depending on how much your using WiFi, screen brightness etc

You'll see a reasonably similar life on the Intel Atom Clovertrail based System on a Chip tablets like the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2, Acer Iconia W510 etc etc + Win32 support and they also support Connected Standby like RT as well so the system keeps updated while your "off"

In desktop mode, there is a keyboard button you can tap on at the bottom right hand side of taskbar to bring up the on screen keyboard.




Do whatever you want to do man.
