    Looks a lot like an iPhone 4 tbh. That's no bad thing, but I think they could do better.

    If Microsoft were to release the pictured device, I'd buy one and most likely be compelled to have the same kind of inappropriate affection for it that John Malkovitch or Martin Scorsese have for Siri.

    As pictured, it really does look remarkable.

    I don't agree except from the front view straight on, and only if the display were off (obviously, there's no confusion between iOS and WP8). The non-glass back and non-antenna sides make it dramatically different otherwise.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place, but since day 1 I had a question. Who has made the Surface? No, I mean the literal physical device. OEM if you like. Is it Acer?

    If that was the plan its on hold now their market cap is up my a third in the last several weeks. They're not out of the woods yet but its looking better.
    Good news. :)

    It was made by Microsoft themselves, deep underground in a bunker.





    .... no joke. :)

    if you are going to go square, do square. Ditch the oval buttons and oval openings. Make very small radiused corners on squares or trapezoids like the profile shape. Either way I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Can we combine the two threads on this?
