Microsoft what have you done to yourself this time? I've been waiting so long for the Pro 2 to hit our shores..
Until now no news. Well done. I am buying something else.

lol.. seems typical for Microsoft or Microsoft SG.. don't understand the direction. By the time they bring in, there's probably many other similar specs around. When one buys it, MS will slash the price after. Then double whammy with a new model announcement..

Think better you get online or pre order from opensurface..

No wonder Samsung and Apple are leading. At least they give a date to launch the product. Some of our product here you wait until you gave up on it or buy overseas.

they just can't understand at by making the product more easily available it helps in sale. xbow one is another example, in the meanwhile PS4 is enjoying all the sales.

Another example is the 8 inches windows 8.1 tablets. They are reasonably priced and people will buy if the product is here. They are announe 2 months before but there is no news in sg to come here.

(Toshiba came but the others not confirmed)

Hi echoblue, does yours have this problem ? even after updating it ?
Sorry for the delay. Just remembered this post. Yup confirmed I have sound distortion when transitioning from one song to another while tablet is on standby.

Oh thanks this is real bad, seems like Microsoft representative when I called their service side, told me their tablet does not function the background music when tablet goes to standby or sleep mode. As their application going to suspend mode ( which means in hibernation ) hence the power is reduced down... and that affects the music playback on background mode.

I not sure if ms Representative is giving me a correct answer hence I asked you guys who have the set. Is this a glitch on hardware or software ? ( no point holding my set if it cannot do playback )

Well I hope they can iron out this issues.

Probably SW. No problem before the update. If I remember correctly when the rt was first released, they had this distortion issue but was later on corrected. I hope they correct this soon! Mine still plays but subtle distortion at start of next song (more noticeable on other songs). Its just a second of the song but majority of the song is ok... I will monitor this and see if it improves on the next update...
