Well, I went out to a Microsoft stand today, to have a look at the Surface tablet.
Physically, it seemed quite a bit thicker and chunkier than my Galaxy Tab 10.1.
First impressions, its quite snappy, the slide from the side gestures are usable and became second nature in a couple of minutes.
However, Apps do take a while to load.
And I managed to freeze it with after a few minutes. So I asked the sales girl, how I press Control-Alt-Delete on a tablet because it's locked up. She took it off me with a frown and did something I couldn't see and waited til it rebooted before giving it back.
No greater reminder that it's a Microsoft product, than to have it crash :(
you mean its little bit so what do you think about this surface tab will exist in market as it is having only 1.3% market expected by the microsoft for this year.
As I am Planning to buy as windows 8 based smartphone.
You seem to be the type of guy who's either very lucky or who does not push his devices too much. You had a good time with the WP7 whereas I crashed mine every week, and now you seem to be doing well with WinRT as well
Very true. I'm going to lean toward "lucky". It's not as though I've babied either of my Windows Phones. I haven't pushed the Surface as hard as I could yet, but I've used it quite a bit. As I continue to work on my first Win8 app, I'll push it harder since it's going to be my test machine.
