Microsoft Surface Tablet Review
It may look the part, but the Surface RT has a long way to go before it can compete well.
Right now, there really isn't much to report here. Not only is there very little in the way of apps, but many of the media functions are handled by Microsoft's own operating system. It stands to reason that the app market will grow, but we don't know if it will resemble that of Apple or Android until a year or so has gone by at the bare minimum. While it's regrettable to give a terrible score for this now, at the moment the app market is basically nonexistent.
Other Internet Features
One thing is very important to note is that there are many internet functions that will not be able to be used with third-party software like web browsing in Windows RT. While you can basically do almost anything you want with Windows 8, Windows RT is in no way the same as the new OS.
