Just wanna share that I've managed to connect and set up a Huawei mobile data modem via USB on a Surface Pro to access Internet.

But one thing is it'll get very hot on the back, even just watching streamed videos on WIFI connection...

With the reduced price wondering if it is worth getting or just wait for nexus 7 version 2 slated to be released in July as well

imho if a tablet has office, it'll beat any android/ios tab hands down. For media consumption, its a different story

Hey guys, I was wondering if the Surface RT is capable of playing MKV files with SRT subtitles right out of the box?

If it does not, is there any app on the market that helps to play the MKV with SRT subtitles?

It seems unless you absolutely need ms office on the go, you are better off having an android or ipad that can provide more purposes for that kind of price

All i know so far is only NYP released news, managed to order a set with one person, will see how soon it arrives. Surface rt @ $300 is a pretty good deal imho

Do you all use your Surface and watch videos in public? I did that today and find that it's a little too big. Very attention seeking, but loving the big screen at the same time.
