Microsoft Surface Pro 2 gets more juice – software update gives tablet 25% more battery life

November 4, 2013

In testing done by Anandtech, the Surface Pro 2 ran over 8 hours while browsing the web over Wi-Fi. That's a jump up from 6.6 hours before the latest software update was released. The improvement also means you can play video over Wi-Fi 16% longer to 7.75 hours from 6.65 pre-update.

But the Surface Pro 2 still trails the competition by a bit, scoring 8.330 versus 9.480 for the iPad Air and 12.230 for the latest Google Nexus model.

October 31, 2013

Groene, who’s official title is director of design on the Surface team, tackles everything from how design and engineering work meshed together to what fabric is being used on the Type Cover 2.

Hurry up if you want to buy the new Surface 2 Power Cover & Docking Station

October 25, 2013

ZDNet’s Mary Jo-Foley first reported that some Power Cover and Docking Station customers were getting their devices ahead of their scheduled availability, and Paul Thurrott’s Windows SuperSite later claimed that Microsoft execs have said that the accessories will be available early but only in ‘limited quantities’.

Microsoft announced the new Power Cover, which boosts tablet battery life by 75%, and the $200 docking station, which has USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort and Ethernet connections, at the Surface 2 unveiling in New York last month.

Microsoft says Surface tablets brought in $400M in last quarter

October 25, 2013

While that hardly makes up for the $900 million write off the software giant had to take in back in July for unsold Surface RT tablets it does show its Surface line is at least now generating significant revenue. 

Microsoft says that it sold “more than double” the Surface units it sold in the prior quarter. During its earnings call today, Microsoft also noted that the 32 GB Surface RT sold best among retail and education customers.

Microsoft slices another $100 off the original Surface Pro tablet

October 24, 2013

The discount, which only seems to apply to buyers living in the U.S. or Canada, sees the first-generation model fall to $699 and is due to expire on December 31. The Surface Pro price was previously cut by $100 in August.

Microsoft is almost certainly doing this to sell off remaining inventory and could well stop selling the first-generation device altogether from 2014, as it is no longer listed on the firm's main Surface website.

The company announced the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in New York last month and the former is now available starting at $899.

Microsoft issues fix for Surface tablets bricked by Windows RT 8.1 Update

October 21, 2013

After pulling Windows RT 8.1 from the Windows Store over the weekend, Microsoft on Monday released a recovery image that can be used to resurrect devices rendered unusable or “bricked” by the update.

It’s not the simplest of fixes, requiring a USB drive and some command line prompts. But I’m told from a few users who’ve attempted it that it does the trick.
