says on the website that it does, under tech specs

Type Cover 2 - Microsoft Store
Thanks for the correction. My bad. It's the Battery Cover that's not compatible.

You can select your desired homepage and pin to start. I think that is the way. I did that for google.com.sg. Didn't like the Bing page

I sold off my iPad 2 for a surface RT. Seriously if not for the full office, surface is really no fight for iPad. Load up time few seconds slower (few sec is like eternity). Not so responsive touch, even miss hit a few times. Poor backpage and no front page application. Miss my iPad already.

I updated the firmware this morning and now the Type keyboard can't accept keystrokes, only the track pad is working...

Please hold on to the update if possible if yours is a RT, as recovery is not possible on RT sets. BTW, I was previously on Wins 8.1 RT Preview...

i didnt upgrade to 8.1 preview version previously...do you mean the surface rt 8.1 finalised version is already ready for update? I thought the official date is on 18th Oct ? In win 8.1, is there a better browsing experience??

No problem here after the firmware auto update early in the morning. I'm using the Touch Cover keyboard though and typing this on my Surface RT (Windows RT 8.1 preview) with the Touch Cover.

RT runs on Tegra 3, which is terribly terribly outdated hardware, especially compared to the new Apple A6X CPUs. The new T4 chip in the Surface 2 is supposed to be much better although we'll only know for ourselves when the new tablet comes out. I've never had an issue with touch, you might need to run calibration and do a little tweaking for responsiveness (plenty of guides on Google).

Is backpage/frontpage = IE? not sure what you're trying to say there

8.1 drops in 2 days right? Until then just hold off from updating to the preview release

Anyone knows where to buy the Surface Screen protector other than challenger? Looking for alternative source as well as for the MS surface RT casing.

Thanks
