As you may know, here at SalesWays, we’re putting the focus on salespeople when it comes to looking at tech tools, and after our last Sales Tech Talk review on the Samsung Note 8.0 we’re excited to get our hands on the next tech gadget.
Next up for review is the Microsoft Surface RT. Though it’s not the first time we’ve written about this tablet, (our tech-aholic Keith Thompson reviewed it earlier this year), our team will take turns reviewing this mobile device and will report back to you on its effectiveness for sales professional, along with our overall impressions of the device.
This ultra-thin and light device is Microsoft’s first attempt at a touch-screen interface on a mobile tablet.
Here are the specs for the Surface RT:
- 10.6-inch 1366 x786 widescreen HD Display
- 5-point multi-touch screen
- NVIDIA T30 processor with 2 BG of RAM
- 32 GB of storage
- Two 720p HD cameras, front and rear-facing camera
- Up to 8 hours of mixed activity or 7-15 days of idle life
Here’s an excerpt of what Keith Thompson’s first impressions of this Microsoft tablet were earlier this year:
“The Microsoft Surface RT experience has Apple written all over it, from the quality design of the packaging to the elegance and simplicity of the device itself, but inside, the RT is Microsoft through and through with an all new mobile operating system based on Windows 8.”
Stay tuned for our hands-on review of the Microsoft Surface RT in the coming weeks.
