Microsoft Surface RT review

Microsoft Surface is the best productivity tablet yet, and it had better be. As the only Microsoft-branded Windows rt hardware to launch with the new operating system the tablet serves as ambassador and flagship for the touch-focused, wildly risky Windows grand experiment. The Surface excels thanks to its thoughtful design, sensible implementation of its keyboard accessory, and the innobations brought about by the interface for merly known as “Metro” — chief among them:the gesture-driven menu system, powerful search tool, and incredibly cool and versatile splits-creen feature.

Unfortunately, there’s a price to pay for doing things differently. I’ve spent a day and an a half with this soldier for the Windows course, and I predict that some of you will find Metro’s learning curve discouraging. Additionally, apps support is dismal, performance especially when using IE10 is slow at times, and like the old guy in the club still hanging around after last call, the traditional Windows interface lingers on, feeling embarrassingly out of place.

The Surface isn’t for everyone. Those looking for tons or even several pounds of apps should look elsewhere: however, it takes a legitimate swing at replacing your computer and comes closer to hitting the mark than any tablet before it.

Microsoft Surface RT $499 reviewed on December 13th, 2012

Sadam ahmed.

Design: 7.0

Features: 8.0

performance: 7.0

The good:

The Microsoft Surface ‘s Metro interface is innovative, elegant, poweerful, and versatile. The tablet feels strong and well-built, runs Office 2013, and includes rich video and music services. Its keyboard cover accessories are the best ways to type on a tablet, period.

The bad:

The tablet’s performance can be ssluggish, its Windows Store is a ghost town, Metro takes getting used to, and the desktop interface feels clunky and useless.

The bottom line:

If you are an early adopter willing to forget everything you know about navigating a computer, the Surface tablet could replace your laptop. Everyone else: wait for more apps.

A look at the Nexus 7

In the last couple of months there has been an avalanche of 7-inch tablets.

Today we have a look at the Nexus 7 which is a collaborative effort between Google and Asus.

Let’s get started.

Design.

Off the bat this tablet feels very well made indeed.

There was no flexing to the screen when I put pressure on the screen.

The back of the device is covered by a grippy material overall this tablet doesn’t feel cheap.

Performance.

Under the hood we have a quad-core processor ram is 2GB.

In every day tasks the tablet performed very well.

Google has done a great job optimising the  Android Jellybean and the experience is fantastic.

Software.

The product comes with Android 4.2 otherwise known as Jellybean.

This is Google’s best version of Android hands down with some recoding and by using project butter smooth Google has managed to bring you the user the most slick version of Android yet with out the custom modification that happens with some Android products.

Conclusion.

I would Thoroughly recommend the Nexus 7 to anyone who is looking for a affordable yet surprisingly capable device.

Android 4.2 has never been better and for the price how can you say no?
