ZNet’s David Gewirtz shines the spotlight on features in both Microsoft Surface tablet PC models that make them better, more innovative, and potentially more game-changing than their counterparts on the iPad.
Way #1: Active tiles
Definitely more appealing than the iPad’s ancient Launcher interface
Way #2: Named Sets Of Applications In The Launcher
Way #3: Ability to run apps side-by-side
Being able to run two apps, side-by-side, on one screen is huge for those of us who use our tablets for content creation, research, editing, and so forth.
Way #4: Real Microsoft Office
Not a biggie for your editor, but some folks gotta’ have Word.
Way #5: Actual USB
Another major advantage Surface offers over the iPad’s severely limited connectivity allowing you to plug in some USB devices put files on a thumb drive and move them onto your tablet and use an external (non-Bluetooth) keyboard and mouse.
