People are really trying to make this Surface thing a serious work tool.

Well... Trying doesn't hurt, unless you're a shareholder, of course.

I bolded the following:

Are you trying to suggest it's hard to send an email from a Surface RT?

No, absolutely. I also do it using my galaxy note.
It is as comfortable as sitting in front of a desktop to write work-related text for hours, isn't it?

It seems people like to talk an awful lot about things they don't know about on here, and then pass it off as fact...like this above post.



With the touch cover or type cover...why wouldn't it be? The keyboard there is about the same size as the keyboard I currently use on my laptop and desktop.

I bet you used a Blackberry phone even after about 2 years the iPhone was available.

Just guessing... :rolleyes:

No I used a real smartphone. I owned multiple Samsung and HTC based Windows Mobile devices, and before Smartphones were prevalent I was using PocketPC and Windows Mobile based PDA's.

I considered Palm and Blackberry devices too limited on the functionality side. I wanted something that could interface with all of my work gear, and keep track of all of my professional and personal obligations.

I could keep that all up-to-date much more easily via Windows Mobile due to Exchange Activesync.


BTW is there a chance people could stop with all the off-topic trolling, and get back to the topic of the thread itself? That of course being about the final words StevenSi fired out to folks. Discuss...
