I found the IE on RT not really that fantastic compared to the other browsers on other devices, so that just leaves Office as a plus.
And until newer hardware comes along it's a package deal, at least for the Surface RT.
All the secrecy, all for naught.The fact that MS has to do all these Surfaces in secret explains why they're using outdated hardware (by 2012 standard). They couldn't get too many people involved or they'll break the secrecy.
So while the OS was ready, the hardware & App situation isn't. But it's also a chicken & egg story. No hardware, no eco-system. No eco-system, no customers. No customers, no developers.
NVidia has confirmed that they're working with Microsoft on Surface 2 but Nokia is rumoured to have Sirius using Snapdragon 800. So does Microsoft actually have 2 versions of RT 8.1?
I wonder how's Tegra 4 compared to Snapdragon 800... With most major apps ready or pledged for RT/8.1, it may have a chance although I think the best thing MS should do is to just put RT on WP9.
All the secrecy, all for naught.
Wouldn't surprise me if RT is scalable to support different processors, after all Android does it just fine.
so does it means whatever files you put on desktop will appear on your tablet? and if tablet no internet connection means cannot access the files?
It means that if you want, you can have an almost exact working environment in terms of settings, bookmarks etc.
For Files, no. It's not Sync automatically because your tablet may not have the space as your desktop.
For cloud sync, you can use Skydrive to Sync Desktop<->Skydrive<->tablet. This is automatic but you have to manage all the restrictions in disk space.
For offline sync, you can use SyncToy which allow you to sync using any WiFi/LAN connection. Only restriction is available space on your tablet.
