"Absolutely better than Android. One step ahead of iPad."5.0 starson by James_U
Pros: Light, feels great
Movies & pictures look great
Love the new interface ... clean, fun, innovative
Snappy, responsive new UI (3x smoother than Droid)
Puts my Kindle Fire to shame, leapfrog over iPad
Even has USB & HDMI interface
Cons: HATE that the old Windows UI is also still there! Odd, but I guess it is there to support legacy apps?
Wish keyboard was included in $499 price. Had to pay extra. Argh!
More apps please! Does have Office + IE, music and major things covered though.
Summary: Microsoft hit a home run with this one. You can clearly see massive potential. It's fun, sexy, smooth and innovative. Apple & Google have some catch up to do on design. But, Microsoft has to catch up on apps. Without question though, this thing is a winner. If Microsoft can attract companies to build an enormous app catalog then watch out. I could see them dominating the market all over again. It's that different and that good of an initial product. This thing is awesome.
