    It's certainly true that Surface misses the mark on some issues -- no gps and no 3g//4g. Sigh. Actually, I can't think of any 3g/4g windows 8 devices... I wonder if 8 drinks up bandwith or something.

    Lack of a cellular data connection is definitely a stumbling block for me. I travel a lot and it's great to be able to fly into jack anybody airport and pop a sim card into my device of choice -- I may not have anyone to call when I arrive, but I've got plenty of people to e-mail, skype, etc. I guess one will have to use their phone as a mobile hot spot with windows 8

    From what I can see , Surface was rush on the market, last spring they was talking of a WINTEL, a tablet build by Intel in association with Microsoft.. and next news we get was the Surface. What happen to the Wintel. I think MS turn back at the last moment and rush the Surface on the market. That's not facts, just my 2 cents
