A First look at the Microsoft Surface.

27 Nov

Hello from the Ms. Volendam. I have just received a new Surface Tablet. This device operates on the Windows  R/T system and has a keyboard built in. I am amazed how light and portable it is and how easy to use. Just touch the live tile pertaining to the application or function you wish to use and its done! I can resize the tiles and rearrange them in any order I wish. When I want to know what the weather is at home in California, I just look at the weather tile. Linking the people in my life has never been faster, I just use the people tile to see what they have posted, or messaged. I can also send them pictures of our adventures in the Australian Islands with one touch. And the best thing is that if I need to type something long,( like this blog) the real live keyboard makes it a quick and accurate task. If you are near a Microsoft Store (please see Trevor’s post below for locations), I suggest that you check one out for yourself.

    Aloha, Wow! Can hardly wait to see a Microsoft Surface in person! Just upgraded my desktop PC to Windows 8 after cruising on the MS Oosterdam to AU and NZ ports with Techspert John Roberts. Would love to sync all with a really portable machine like the MS Surface, especially knowing it has a real keyboard.

    Thanks for your post!

    Frank , my wife and I just returned from the western Caribbean. I was hoping to have seen you. I hope all is well for you and your family. I spent many happy hours with Aiden. I think I made him a little crazy. If you ever have a chance to spend time in Miami, please let me know. I hope to see you again on one of the other Dam ships or in Miami.
