Last Friday I was looking for a tab and ended up with a Windows Surface RT (64GB). Originally I had in mind the Samsung galaxy tab 3 (10’) but, finally decided to take advantage of the deal and try something different. The Surface RT was 210 pound and the Samsung price was around 260 pound.
I thought it was pretty good price for the 64 GB model compared to what it used to be so, decided to take it home. Also, I thought that the Samsung looked a bit like a toy in comparison. I have been using it for 2 days and I must admit that I like pretty much. However, I cannot stop thinking that I am purchasing the biggest failure of Microsoft (after Zune) and that it is likely to become an obsolete brick only in a few months. In addition it has major limitations like the OS itself (Windows RT) and a lot of missing apps: No DS apps, no onkyo app, no spotify app, etc. Will Microsoft finally fix these issues, or is it likely to get worse….? Surface RT or Galaxy tab? This is the dilemma. I still have 15 days to take it back. Any comments will be very much appreciated.
