Microsoft promises continued updates for Surface RT and Surface Pro

Since the launch of the Surface RT tablet in October and the Surface Pro tablet in February, Microsoft has offered monthly software updates for both devices. However, we have noted that some owners are still experiencing issues with connecting to WiFi networks. Surface Pro owners have also been dealing with issues in using the included stylus in some Windows 8 programs such as Photoshop.

Today, the official Surface blog posted an update which went over some of the software improvements that have been made to both tablets, as well as Windows 8 and Windows RT in general. As far as future updates, Microsoft did address the WiFi and stylus issues in the blog post, stating:

When we started working on Surface we put the customer experience at the heart of all that we did. That is still true today and as such, over the coming months, you’ll continue to see updates and improvements made available to both Surface RT and Surface Pro customers. This includes further updates to the wireless system to reduce the instances where Limited Connectivity is reported as well as an update to the Surface Pen driver to enable pressure functionality in Adobe Photoshop with Surface Pro.

The blog also admitted that there is no current update on when the Surface Pro tablet will be made available outside the US and Canada, stating, "Please rest assured that while we don’t have anything specific to share right now, we’ll let you know in a follow-up blog post just as soon as we do."
