Surface-RT

  • Windows on ARMRumors that Microsoft was planning to cut the price of Surface RT have been swirling for a couple of days, and yesterday they came true. Staples in the US is currently advertising the 32 GB base model of the device for $349.99, a drop of $150. Although the price reduction hasn’t been seen elsewhere yet, it should start appearing at other retailers next week. No word on whether the reduction will be offered in other territories.

  • Windows on ARMWhen it comes to its Surface tablets, Microsoft has been on something of a discounting spree of late.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft began to sell its first tablet, the Surface RT, back on October 26, 2012, and added the Surface Pro in February 2013. Since then, sales figures have been less than stellar (well, possibly). This brings Microsoft to an interesting point -- it is time for desperate measures. In other words, the company is holding a fire sale. Of sorts.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft's first commercials for its Surface tablets emphasized the optional keyboard covers, though little focus was placed on the features of the tablet itself. The company's latest commercial does the opposite.

  • Windows on ARMA few weeks ago, Microsoft promised to offer more software updates for its Surface family of hardware products, including the Windows RT-based Surface RT tablet. One of the most long standing issues with the Surface RT has been with its WiFi connectivity. Today, Microsoft plans to issue a new software update to the tablet that concentrates on fixing some WiFi-related issues.

  • Windows on ARMYou might look at the Surface RT and the Surface Pro devices that Microsoft has launched and think that both of them are supposed to be tablets. After all, both have basically the same tablet-style form factor, with a 10.6 inch touchscreen, and both devices have optional Touch and Type covers to serve as keyboards. So that makes the Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets, right?

  • Windows on ARMThe Surface RT tablet and the Windows RT operating system created quite a stir when they were released last October, but the wait-and-see approach some PC manufacturers have taken towards the Windows RT operating system, and the rise of the Surface RT's big brother, the Surface Windows 8 Pro, might be a real threat to their survival in the US.

We called two Microsoft's stores and both confirmed that there is a deal in place but required us to come in to learn more about the offer and would not give us more details over the phone.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft's Surface RT tablet has a sales problem, according to new analyst estimates.

  • Windows on ARMDevelopment and tweaks for the Microsoft Surface have been been catching steam lately. There are a group of developers porting regular Windows applications to Windows RT. There are also a couple of ways to alter touch screen settings. However, Windows RT is still a brand new operating system, and people using it for the first time may have some trouble getting around. It is with that in mind that a comprehensive guide was released that contains more than 50 tips and tricks.

  • Windows on ARMWindows Update is supposed to keep Surface RT shipshape, particularly Security Tuesday updates. But the January 8 bundle causes problems for some Surface users, and Microsoft acknowledges there is an issue.
