Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

If you're not going to address my points, then don't reply to my comment. Its quite obvious by your rhetoric that you have an irrational contempt for Microsoft. Its especially telling that you ignore actual financial and market results for the Surface.

And I don't think I need to point out the high ASPs of Surface devices against others, especially the Surface Pro.
