Its funny isn't it. I find reading books - primarily PDFs - on the iPad a much better experience than on my Surface RT and Nexus 10. However, I do find that surfing the web and watching movies much better on the Surface (and the Nexus). But for working on Office documents, the Surface, for me is the best. All this, of course, leaves me with the unenviable (and costly) situation of having 3 tablets - the Surface (for Office work, surfing and movies), the Nexus (for movies and surfing), and the iPad (for reading books)!!!!After moving from an iPad to the Surface, I thought widescreen was a bit awkward, but not when I pick up an iPad, it feels weird to me. I think its just a matter of what you are used to. I actually like reading and sometimes web surfing in the long portrait mode.
A Nokia RT tablet could make things interesting. Hopefully, they don't get crazy and make millions more than they can sell like MS did with the Surface. By the time I'm ready to upgrade my RT, things should be very interesting...
First, I don't consider it a "failure" yet. Its a V1 venture into something completely new. It did not meet expectations, but I think expectations were insane.If the Surface RT had sported these kinds of specs and pricing from the start it would not have failed:
Nokia Windows RT tablet may resemble a Lumia, carry an iPad-like price
