Outlook Web App - Microsoft Exchange
If you have Exchange 2013, the Outlook Web App gives you all the features of Outlook, with the same interface. And you can even use it offline.
You can't get new mail while offline of course, but you can read email (up to 400 messages in the inbox, Drafts and other recently used folders), write messages, look at your calendar (up to one year of appointments) and create new meetings.
You'll even get alerts for meetings, in the browser at least. Go back online and your offline messages are sent automatically.
I'm not sure what you're asking... but on a side note, you can use POP through the Windows 8 Mail but it requires a workaround. outlook.com (as well as Yahoo and Gmail) support POP. so you direct your ISP email via pop to one of those services. and then you add that outlook.com account (or yahoo or gmail) to windows 8 mail.
Actually, OneNote is available on iOS now.. believe it or not. I have it on my iPad.
Jelly bean is out, I have it on my Galaxy S3 (official release from Verizon even, not a rom). It's not so much of an OS improvement as it is improvements to the various apps that come with. I guess that's why it's 4.1 (there's also a 4.2 also called Jellybean, so I'm not sure what that is).
I agree about the RT though, Office alone is a huge benefit, and while it doesn't include Outlook, it's still something I wish I had on my iPad. Pages and Keynote and what not just aren't good enough.
And having a real USB port that I can plug a keyboard, or flash disk, or whatever into is really a nice benefit.
I'd like to clear up my experience between the two systems.
I own both the samsung galaxy tab 10.1 2 and the windows Surface rt. Please note this is my opinion
TLDR: I'll put this up front. Windows RT feels like a computer in a tablet form, Android tablets feel like a phone with a bigger screen.
I owned my galaxy tablet since release, whenever that is, but I found myself using it for surfing the web and playing games. Occasionally I would watch tv on the tablet and follow sports scores while watching tv but thats all I did. Once I got my galaxy phone though I realized it felt as powerful as my tablet and i could do everything I could do on the tablet and it sat in my corner turned off for months.
When the surface tablet came out I gave into temptation and bought it. I found and still find myself using it a month later while the galaxy tab sits in the corner. The tablet just feels like a pc. I'll check my emails, play games, and watch movies while surfing the net just like with my android device. The difference is when I need to do work. I used to turn off my galaxy tablet and go to my computer whenever I needed to do research and work but now I don't touch it at all. I do all my planning, research, and design right on my tablet.
In my opinion the android tablets have their use with the right consumer... But its not me. Its hard to explain how the surface works without using it for a month. It just works and it does it well. Every week I get a new update either to my apps or the system itself and you can feel it getting faster and more polished as time goes on. The biggest thing for windows over galaxy is my surface will be updated and supported for years to come. My galaxy tablet is already outdated and not going to be supported only one year into owning it. Its nice to know a company isn't going to sell me a product and leave me in the dust.
Hello, kjoe51689. Welcome to Eight Forums. It's good to have you aboard.
Thanks for your outlook on the differences. Sweet and to the point. I learned a lot from that.
