Microsoft Paying Up To $150 For RT Tablet Owners Who Upgrade To Surface 3
We know for sure now that Windows RT has reached the end of the road and that Microsoft will not be reviving this iteration of its operating system.

Surface 3 Tablet Will Reportedly Tout A Full Version Of Windows
Microsoft launched the Surface 2 tablet back in 2013. Last year the company launched the Surface Pro 3 but didn’t say if it would be launching a Surface 3.

A new report today claims Microsoft is working on the Surface 3 tablet […]

Microsoft Surface 2 Manufacturing Has Ceased
Microsoft’s Surface 2 tablet has been out for a couple of years now and has since been succeeded by the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, which is why we guess it doesn’t come as a complete shock to find out that Microsoft will no longer be manufacturing the tablet, so if you are still looking for the Surface 2, you will need to try your luck at retailers who might still […]

Surface 2 Helped Microsoft’s Tablet Market Share Increase By 60%
The Surface 2 tablet from Microsoft is more than a year old now, and earlier this year, we have even seen Microsoft introduce a $100 price cut to this particular tablet in an effort to perhaps clear out its inventory. All in all, the Microsoft Surface 2 has not really managed to meet the kind of sales figures that the iPad from Apple did (in all of its different variations), […]


Microsoft Surface 2 Listed As Out Of Stock
It does take a certain sense of wisdom to know when to retire gracefully, and that is a question that athletes tend to ask themselves if they are at the top of their game for a while and start to see chinks in the proverbial armor. Having said that, the Microsoft Surface 2, which is out on the market for close to a year, might soon be phased out, especially […]

For those who have been looking out to get a Microsoft Surface 2, perhaps now is the best time to be able to do so. After all, how does a $100 price cut sound for the Microsoft Surface 2?

Naturally in a family there are those who use Android, those who use iOS, some who prefer BlackBerry, some might prefer Windows Phone, and so on.

Microsoft Surface 2 With LTE Tablet Arriving March 18
It is a no brainer that the Microsoft Surface 2 with LTE connectivity will arrive in a matter of time, but the main question on everyone’s minds would be this – when? Apparently, the Microsoft Surface 2 with LTE tablet is set to arrive on March 18, which is tomorrow, where it will play nice with AT&T’s 4G LTE network while sporting 64GB of internal memory, with an asking price […]

Surface 2 With LTE Spotted At The FCC
Back in October 2013, Microsoft launched their brand new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets. Both tablets offered up WiFi connectivity but at the same time, we’re sure that many wouldn’t mind if the tablets came with an LTE option. After all not everywhere provides WiFi and tethering to your phone is a good and quick way to use up your data. The good news was that during an […]

Surface 2 Tablets Back In Stock On Microsoft Store Website
Last month it was reported that the online Microsoft Store had sold out of most Surface 2 tablets one week prior to Christmas. It was unclear why the company was struggling to meet demand, that too in a lucrative period such as the holiday season. Most models have actually been sold out online for a few weeks now, just one model of both Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablet […]

Microsoft Targets The Galaxy Tab In Ad This Time Around
We have seen just how cheeky Microsoft can get by targeting some of the rival tablets in its ads recently, where the Surface RT was seen firing a salvo at the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 from Samsung, while Apple’s iPad Air was not exempted either, as it was compared to the Surface 2. This time around, we have seen Microsoft aim their crosshairs at the Samsung Galaxy Tab, where said […]

New Microsoft Surface RT Ad Takes Aim At The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
It was just yesterday that Microsoft decided to treat us to a video in which the company’s Surface 2 tablet was compared against the likes of the iPad Air. This was shortly after Microsoft’s latest Scroogled campaign and also shortly after Nokia released a video of their Lumia 2520 that poked fun at the iPad Air as well. In any case it looks like Microsoft is back again and this […]

Microsoft Releases New Surface 2 Ad Targeting The iPad Air
Microsoft seems to be on a roll these days when it comes to poking fun at their competition. Earlier we saw how Microsoft’s Scroogled campaign dismissed the Google Chromebook as a proper laptop, and now we are seeing how Microsoft is taking yet another shot at Apple’s iPads, comparing the company’s own Surface 2 tablet against it. We suppose it’s become common knowledge that the iPad does not sport the […]

When you game on a device, doesn’t matter whether it’s on a PC, a laptop, a tablet, or a smartphone, it can get pretty intensive and it will consume more resources compared to checking your email. This means that there are times when your device gets a bit hot (PCs and laptops have the advantage of having cooling systems to help counteract this problem), and it seems that Microsoft’s Surface […]

Surface 2 Review
Despite featuring an original design and gathering good reviews, including from our own team, the first Surface (RT) had a hard time finding a market. As a result, Microsoft had to write down a substantial amount of money, but has decided to soldier on because abandoning the tablet market is just not an option. Microsoft needs Surface to show the way for other OEMs, and to do just that, the […]

Qualcomm Doesn't See A 'Contest' Between Lumia 2520 And Surface 2
For long Nokia was rumored to be working on a tablet. Earlier this week the Finnish manufacturer finally unveiled its first tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520. Despite the fact that it is currently under the process of being acquired by Microsoft, Nokia’s new tablet puts it in direct competition with Redmond’s new offering, the Surface 2. We’ve no doubt been wondering exactly how both tablets stack up against each other and […]
