Surface

For those looking for a portable tablet gaming experience, Windows tablets can sure hit the mark like no other platform. Whether you are looking at the fully equipped Razer Edge with an Nvidia GeForce GPU and dual joysticks, or you are looking at a Surface 2 – experiences are ready to be had.

The power of a full Windows 8 tablet allows gamers to experience their favorite titles like Counter Strike: GO, Team Fortress 2, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, and Titanfall anywhere they go.  If you are using a Windows RT based tablet, the fun does not end just because you are limited to the Windows Store - not if you have an Xbox 360 controller.

Microsoft's Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are great machines for getting things done. They're equally as good at entertainment.

Here's a project on Kickstarter that's going to increase your listening experience when watching video or playing games. Want some Ears for your Surface?

Folks who take advantage of their Surface Pro 2 for gaming are probably in the minority, but Microsoft is tossing up a pretty sweet deal for those who want to get a little more than just productivity done on the device. The Microsoft Store is offering up what it calls a "Geek & Sundry" bundle deal with the Surface Pro 2 that shaves over $100 off buying the tablet, an Xbox Wireless Controller for Windows and two game downloads — War Thunder Mustang Advanced Pack and Farming Simulator 2013 — all together.

What happens when a tablet and an ultrabook have a one night stand? You get the Surface Pro 2. Thank you, I’m here all night. Both the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 are killer machines, but like all machines they have a few faults. With both you only get one USB port and neither machine has an Ethernet port. Here’s one little doohickey that could become an essential travel companion to your Surface Pro 2. The DualRole from Kanex.

Advertisements come in all shape and form. Ads that highlight the strengths of your products are generally the one most people like. Though companies like Microsoft, Samsung, Google and Apple are all guilty of taking the ‘attack ad’ approach. Most of the time those types of ads are a little hard to watch and come off as petty. Here’s a new one from Samsung that just induces all sorts of cringe.

Earlier this week, Microsoft finally released the Surface 2 with LTE on board here in the US. Available at Best Buy and Microsoft Stores (both online and in-stores), the $679 device brings 4G LTE connectivity to you wherever, whenever.

I managed to pick one up and have been playing around with it for the last 72 hours. Seeing as a lot of people are curious about this device, including features or limitations, I figured I’d do a quick-n-dirty breakdown of the major aspects. Hopefully it will quench your thirst in case you are considering this device.

Microsoft's Surface 2 with LTE has just gone on sale, as previously reported. The asking price is $679 and is locked to AT&T's 4G network, enabling owners to utilize the internet while out and about – there's nothing worse than enjoying the sun on a Wi-Fi-only tablet with no way to connect online.

You can pick one up from the Microsoft Store right now.

Earlier this afternoon, we reported that Microsoft Stores were getting stock of the new Surface 2 with LTE, destined for AT&T. At the time, we were unable to post photos due to a confidentiality request. Since that time we have ascertained more information, which we can share with you now.

The 64 GB version of the LTE based Surface 2 will have an in-store price of $679. Compared to $549 for the 64 GB non-LTE Surface 2, consumers are looking at $130 price hike for having permanent internet connectivity. We do not yet know if AT&T will be offering any tie ins or contract deals to lower that amount, though it’s certainly feasible if you toss in a 2-year contract.

The new Surface accessory was expected to launch near or alongside the second generation of Surface tablets, but apparent delays kept it from being on schedule. Luckily, and thanks to a collection of patience from Surface users, the Surface Power Cover is now available for sale from the Microsoft store.

Build 2014 is right around the corner, and we’re expecting a few big announcements from Microsoft during that three day event.

We’re big fans of the Surface 2. Everything about the hardware is gorgeous. And the internals of the Surface 2 can actually run Windows decently, unlike the first-generation Surface. Which is why we’re stoked to learn that Microsoft is bringing a new accessory for the Surface family. Recent FCC filings reveal a wireless display dongle that will be coming soon.

Microsoft launched the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 this past October, but it was in September that they announced the two new tablets and their respective accessories. It was shortly after the official announcement that the Surface team did an AMA on Reddit and divulged some interesting information. There would be a Surface 2 with LTE and GPS launching early in 2014. That’s a very vague timeframe, but it looks to be coming fairly soon. A Surface 2 with LTE was just spotted in the FCC.

Microsoft has been working hard to show that their lineup of Surface devices are more than just tablets for media consumption. And on that note, what would be a better place to start proving its productivity value than on a commercial airline? Delta is one of the first airlines to truly get comfortable with the tablet and test it with their commercial pilots (on the ground that is). This week, Microsoft has a collection of news updates that show the true progress happening with their Surface devices and their effort to advance the future of flight.
