Tablets are the new personal computers. But can they replace a laptop? And do Windows 2-in-1s like the Surface really make for better faux laptops than the iPad? Let's take a look, as Gizmag goes hands-on with keyboard-laden versions of the iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina Display, Surface 2, and Surface Pro 2.  Read More

The slow sales of the original Microsoft Surface may have made it an easy target for snarky comments (including some from yours truly), but we also think there's a lot to love about Microsoft's series of hybrid PCs. Let's take a look at the latest version of the Windows RT model, as Gizmag reviews the Microsoft Surface 2.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of the iPad Air and Surface 2

Despite hitting some hard times, Microsoft's Surface is still somewhere near the top of the list of 10-inch iPad alternatives. But is the Surface 2 worth a look over the new iPad Air? Or is that goose already cooked? Join Gizmag, as we compare the tablets' features and specs.  Read More

The Lumia 2520 - Nokia's answer to the Surface 2

Nokia has unveiled the much-rumored Lumia 2520 tablet today. The device comes in a range of matte and glossy colors, and offers about what you might expect from a tablet in the Lumia range. The most prominent feature here is easily the cameras, which are more akin to what you might find on a mid-range smart phone than your average tablet.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of the Microsoft Surface 2 (left) and Surface Pro 2

The Microsoft Surface has been, by just about any measure, a commercial flop. When your company writes off US$900 million in unsold stock, well, that writing is on the wall. But that doesn't mean the first-generation Surface and Surface Pro haven't made some customers very happy. If you're part of that, ahem, "elite" group, or think you might be sometime soon, do you spring for the Surface 2 or the Surface Pro 2? Join Gizmag, as we compare Microsoft's second round of hybrid tablets.  Read More

Microsoft's Surface RT will get a touch-optimized version of Outlook 2013 as part of the u...

One of the problems with the Microsoft Surface RT and Windows RT in general, was the lack of a decent email client. While the Surface RT comes with Office Home and Student Edition installed for free, it doesn’t include Outlook. This leaves users with the bleak and underwhelming Mail app, or bouncing between web-based email accounts in IE. But Microsoft is about to patch this hole with the upcoming of release of the Windows RT 8.1 update.  Read More

A new report states that Microsoft is set to fold Windows RT into the first big update to ...

Microsoft’s Surface Pro makes sense for customers. It takes the power – and app support – of an Ultrabook, and combines it with the body of a tablet. Windows RT tablets, on the other hand, make a lot less sense. Limited app support and confusing incompatibility with legacy Windows apps make them niche products. If a new report holds any water, Microsoft realizes this and is ready to pull the plug on Windows RT products.  Read More

How does the Nexus 10 compare to Microsoft Surface RT?

Apple has owned the 10-inch tablet market. Budget slates have done well on the low end, but other full-sized tablets have been utterly dominated by the iPad. Samsung, Google, and Microsoft hope to change that. Surface RT and Nexus 10 are the most compelling full-sized iPad challengers yet. How do they stack up?  Read More
