tigerf, 29 Oct 2012yes there's flash support on internet explorer.NO, there is NOT full support for Adobe Flash, only some pages with flash work!
Surface totally sucks, and is too expensive, and you have to pay extra for the keyboard because surface does not come with a keyboard included! A good review is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_927708&feature=iv&src_vid=dqAo4D7bfnQ&v=gQhhtvuZwVg
Just iPad.iPad 4 has 5MP but Surface 1.2 iPad 4 has LTE but Surface not.iPad 4 has 264 ppi but Surface 148 ppi iPad 4 has better video camera and more features on it's camera and iOS is better than Windows 8 because of features like Clock,Siri,Game center,App store,Photo Booth,Reminders,iWork and iLife.The speed of camera in capturing photos is very much and iOS has better UI than Windows 8.And the design of A6x is very good that makes the iPad more faster than Surface.iPad has better design too.Surface RT is nothin behind iPad 4 especially wifi + cellular and I thin Surface Pro can be a little near to iPad 4.
tigerf, 29 Oct 2012yes there's flash support on internet explorer.Thank you very much. I think it is great plus in comparison with android, so since 15 of august android doesnt support flash player anymore.
James, 28 Oct 2012iPad 4 + WiFi + Cellular + Smart Cover + Bluetooth Keyboard = Surface KillerMaybe but the surface costs £399 please tell me how much all that would cost??? I'd recon about £800.
Not fair comparison then is it?
xD4rever, 28 Oct 20121.2MP camera ,are you kidding me?yeah. they must be. i too cannot just understand why the device is coming when it is sure to underscore.
i have not had SURFACE hands-on experience. but i presume it will be a strong challenger to apple n android.
as articles suggest surface seems to grow on you. its unlike any platform as we know. looks like ms have taken care of quite a few issues which common people like me did'nt even noticed and considered the flaws as part/feature of the system.
i am not a very tech savvy person but i am definitely looking forward to Surface.
if you are going to compare the ipad icons with surface tablet live tiles, i think the live tiles give more information than dead icons.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2012iPad 4 is better.especially iPad 4 wifi+cellular.because of better network,better chipset,bett... moremaybe Surface 2 is better.why you not compare Surface 4 with Ipad 4?.first time microsoft make a tablet and is not weird if Surface better then Ipad 3 or 4.

Anonymous, 27 Oct 2012iPad 4 is better.especially iPad 4 wifi+cellular.because of better network,better chipset,bett... moreSurface RT is better. Especially Surface Pro. Better chipset (quad core vs dual core, the pro has ivy bridge i5 cpu and both have 2gb ram vs 1gb ram on ipad), better design (has a kickstand and the RT is thinner than the ipad), better connectivity (has usb 2.o on RT, 3.0 on pro), surface has expandable memory with sd cards (up to 64gb), surface has more useful apps (word, excel, powerpoint come free with the RT, pro will support all windows apps, and u can install flash on the pro so u dont have to buy apps from a store when u can find them online for free, RT supports more flash websites than ipad), a keyboard that doesnt need to be connected over bluetooth (bluetooth drains battery and can be insecure), surface arguably has the better screen (16:9 is much better for watching movies and displaying websites, and the surface screen can get brighter (more nits than ipad screen)), surface has a useful bezel (u swipe it to close apps, bring up settings, etc), surface has much better multitasking
see how providing selective information can skew results?
I preordered the Surface. Microsoft Store UK managed to take the money out of my account twice and CANCELLED my order anyway.
