Ladies and gentleman, the end of proper computational terms. reminds me of apple naming the ip number something fancy, something less "technical" so much that I can't even remember the proper name now.

 

P.D: I'll go and edit audio on my just arrived Cubasis 7 application.

I'd apologize that shorthand is so offensive to you, but that would be ridiculous.

What you're saying is only relevant to RT, not 8.  So their skew and your skew of the facts are equally lame.

 

I'm not skewing anything. you want  to openly refer to 'apps' as desktop applications when its been well known that this is no longer the case with windows 8 and so forth introducing metro apps. 'Apps' are no longer a term referring to desktop apps, that run on 32/64bit architectures, but to Metro/Modern UI.

androids tablet apps selection is mediocre at best compared to the windows store, it runs mostly phone apps rescaled or blown up. fact, 10inch android tablets were complete and utter failures. where do you get off criticizing rt tablets,which are 10+ inch, yet referencing android in the same breath.

 

rt has full flash support,so you can access the majority of the content from these missing apps by using the browser anyways.

:laugh:  Wow, you know nothing! Android apps are up to the snuff. I mean have you actually had a look at what they can do? All the best apps are right there, along with iOS. The selection beats the pants of MS appstore, on any front any time of the day. 2 are maturing platforms, whilst the other is trying to emulate a reputation it is yet to earn. Nice try. And yes, flash runs on Android. YouTube videos work perfectly, on Chrome, on Firefox, on Opera, on Dolphin and any other tablet app for android. So yah.... not that great or differentiated if MS thought IE had that going for it, LOL. And honestly, we are talking about apps, not the details of android  hardware, so try and stick to the topic. "where do I get off" -> how about i get off the place that states you should face the facts  :rolleyes:

Who decided that when?  Sounds like you're the only one who decided that.

 

Apps refer to all applications you can run on the OS.

I disagree about the apps too.

 

But, and this is a big but, the only apps that I miss are specialized ones, like Candy Crush. The web browser is "good enough" for most things, and using it an RT device isn't a chore. I do wish I had waited for the 2nd generation, with benchmarks that are between 100% and 400% faster.

6. Microsoft Office 2013 is installed on Windows RT and  offers a robust experience for work and school etc.  When you buy a Windows RT tablet, you are essentially get Microsoft Office 2013 for free.

 

 

If I recall correctly, the Office preinstalled on RT device is Home&Student version (or similar), which is not allowed to be used for business or profitable activities AFAIK.

you don't seem to understand what tablet apps are. the selection of tablet apps for android is weak, even greatly weaker than the selection in the windows store. my point being,dont even bring android into this when you are criticizing RT,because on the tablet apps side, android is more than a failure. 
 

That there are over 375,000 apps in the Apple App Store that are designed with iPad users in mind, versus just a fraction of this – in the low tens of thousands – available through Google Play

,because on the tablet apps side, android is more than a failure.

 

Most apps can be scaled to larger screens with no issues.   I have never had an issue using an Android app on a tablet which was written for a phone in my 4+ years using a tablet.  I know a lot of other people as well and no one is really complaining about this in the community...because apps can be scaled for larger screens.

 

Tablet apps on Android is far from being a failure.
