Digitimes Research: Surface 2 series tablets unlikely to help Microsoft in mobile market - comments from readers
Jim Hsiao, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 30 September 2013]
  • Posted on Sep 30, 23:55

    Digitimes has it right. I'm interested in Surface. It has the same great industrial design as iPad, and is now nearly on par in battery life and resolution. Trouble is, I already have an iPad. I like it and I'm satisfied. Maybe when I buy a second tablet.
