The inimitable Chris Velazco and I took to the TechCrunch TV screens to dig into the new Surface hardware that Microsoft announced today. Chris and I are both long-time Surface owners and users, so we speak with a bit of experience and fondness.
The hardware, we surmise, is great, but we remain a bit unsure about the software that Microsoft has compiled for its tablet hybrids. Can the Windows Store provide enough application density and depth to allow for the Surface 2 to avoid the sins of its predecessor, the Surface RT? That remains an open question.
