The new Microsoft Surface RT has been making a buzz since it was released. Did it beat the iPad? Well, we have yet to see as it is still too early to say but it does have some standout features that are great for business use.
The Microsoft Surface
It’s very tiring and time-consuming to type on the iPad especially if you are used to typing on a keyboard. You can’t finish your work quickly if you use the on-screen keyboard on the iPad. The solution is to buy an external keyboard that connects to your iPad but since it’s an Apple accessory, it definitely costs some dough.
You won’t have that problem with the Surface. It comes with its own keyboard that doubles as its cover. The keys are slightly raised making your fingers feel as though they are typing on a keyboard. You can also fold off the cover and prop up the Surface making it look like your tablet has turned into a laptop.
You can also let your personality shine by choosing your favorite color. These are available in several colors that are sure to perk up your day. You no longer have to be stuck in either black or white.
Free Office 2013
The problem with the iPad is if you want a good document creation app, you have to buy it. With the Surface, you get the Office 2013 for free! You get Word, Excel and PowerPoint. It also comes with OneNote 2013. OneNote is an information gathering and collaboration tool in one. You can also save your documents to Microsoft SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage so you can access your files anywhere.
Battery life has always been a problem with Apple devices. Samsung devices actually topple them in this category. This problem is more pronounced now with the Lightning connector. The Surface lasts for almost 10 hours so you can take it with you wherever you go and not worry about recharging in the middle of nowhere. You also don’t need to turn off battery-sucking features and even dim the display light to save on battery life.
You can now connect to several gadgets by using Bluetooth 4.0, a USB port and a microSD port. You can now use your mouse, a digital pen, other keyboards, webcams and even view photos from your camera using your Surface.
These are but a few features that make the Windows Surface RT stand out over the competition. Discover more when you buy the Microsoft Surface for your business or personal use.
