A few Questions for Surface 2


I am thinking of getting the Surface 2 but I am wondering if some of my complaints about the Surface RT has been addressed. I wonder if the speaker volume is now louder than that of the RT. Even my Lumia 521 with a single speaker is far better than the twin speakers on my RT.

Also does the Surface 2 allow uninterrupted background apps even when in sleep mode? I say so because with my RT I must admit that I have never been able to enjoy music on this tablet because it just doesn't allow music to play in the background when its in sleep mode. I know some apps can do so when in the desktop mode however I really wonder why they have to place such restrictions and whether they have addressed that in the Surface 2.

Music Apps that successfully play in Connected Standby include Xbox Music, Nokia Music and Graffiti Radio, Surface 2 is louder than the RT, still not great but works well enough....
