It's a unique material..soft.

As its win8, did not pick up the unit.
Nice product though.

Went to check it out just now, sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet design. The Touch Cover definitely needs some getting used to though. Wonder why they can't just load up the demo sets with some of the free games (also something they don't do on Windows 8 hardware in general, last I checked)...

Was at the launch and asked when the Pro was arriving. A few maintained the official response but the last one said 'weeks'.

Of course, I am grabbing at straws since I am eyeing one, and I try not to put too much credence in that single reply. But if even Microsoft SG site says the Pro is coming soon, why not?

Well once they start releasing it in other countries it'll be a good indicator.

If your phone connects as a USB device, yep. If it requires a program (e.g. iTunes for iPhone) then you're out of luck since you can't install traditional desktop programs. If you're using Windows Phone 8 you can use the Windows Phone app to transfer as well (or just drag and drop).

And yes, it'll detect hard disks (and a whole lot of other USB devices), which is one of the great things about Surface.

Me me ! I am in the queue now, still the first 100
I was the 101st in q, was sad at first but they told me 101 onwards will still get the powerbank so i stayed at the q. then lo and behold after 30 mins of waiting, a staff approached me and was told that it was my lucky night. apparently someone left the q so i became the 100th! that made my evening!!! they even shook my hand and congratulated me (that was too much though hehe)

got the 64GB option + cyan cover. i noticed most buyers bought the 32GB (which was not surprising!)

Just my opinion after using the touch cover for 4 month. If you are intending to type alot on your surface, get the type cover. I just bought the type cover to replace my touch cover and the difference was almost day and night (for me).
