After a few weeks using my 64gb Surface, I'm still a little disappointed that I was required to accept a touch cover to get it. I would have much preferred a type cover, and would have been willing to pay the price difference. I thought I'd get used to this touch cover, but I'm not so sure. I had also just assumed there would be no problem getting my email. I get it on my windows 8 phone, I ought to be able to get it on this device.
