    i just searched for a 64gb lumia 2520 and saw none where made but thats fine, it has a sd card grreatttt oh but wait you can't put apps on it and the office takes majority of what the OS doesn't, im pretty sure the word processor they made for ipads isnt as big as the one the one that runs on their os.
    this is why windows RT sucks, what am i meant to do if i can't install, fifa14 and asphalt at the same time if i have office on it.

    Microsoft are always the number one reason their platforms fails.

    You can compress the entire drive (C:) and remove the Recovery partition, that will give you more room... at a price at speed...

    The RT version of Office is almost a complete 100% port (if I understand correctly) meaning its going to be comparable to desktop Office. The iPad version isn't as featured and was built ground-up. The Office "Touch" will be as well, and likely lighter.

    You're just raging over storage, ok. Maybe the 2520 isn't for you. They've done some great work with WIMBoot as well.
    Although I do seem them as bumbling over in PR at times.

    Office and Windows RT combined take up 8GB or so. That would mean that, maybe, it's 2-2.5GB on its own. I have the Office apps installed on my iPad, so I can tell you the vast difference.

    Word:489MB
    Excel:461MB
    PowerPoint: 448MB
    OneNote: 417MB

    Outlook isn't there, so I can't tell you how much space that takes on the iPad. With those alone, though, they're not that much different in terms of size. Then, as somebody pointed out, you have to realize that Office on Windows RT has more features than the one on the iPad.

    The RT version of Office is almost a complete 100% port (if I understand correctly) meaning its going to be comparable to desktop Office. The iPad version isn't as featured and was built ground-up. The Office "Touch" will be as well, and likely lighter.

    Is it just me, or did you come here just to tell us how Windows RT sucks because of arbitrary reasons?

    na honestly i want to get a RT tablet but if most RT tablets are made with only 32gb of space, then isnt letting us install apps on sd cards common sense?. my problem wasn't with RT or Office its with the lack of ability to install metro apps onto sd cards when the majority of windows tablet made are 32gb

    There is a registry hack to install apps to SD.
    YouTube has a few videos on the subject.
    Doing this is a little involved, yet not real difficult.

    I have my RT and my DV8P set up this way.
    The Venue is much better however because I have my executes running from the SD card in it.
    Both are 64 gig devices so storage hasn't been much trouble.

    The simple answer is find an RT powered tablet with 64Gb. There's plenty of them out there.

    I still use my webOS Verizon PrePlus (as it is my primary phone), and I still use my Touchpad, just needed to replace an old Windows XP box and the Surface RT 64G was on clearance, could not pass it up...

    If you can't install apps on the SD card, can you not install them on a jump drive or something connected via USB? I'm just curious.

    Why are you infuriated with MS when you are talking about a device built by Nokia (Well into the design if not build stage before MS took over the device division).

    If you want a tablet for running Office, maybe an RT device isn't what you want, don't get me wrong, it will run Office for RT but RT was built to run on more domestic use devices, so if you want a tablet with more spec, consider a Surface Pro or Surface Pro 2 if you can't go the whole way for a Surface 3, you will probably find you can get a Surface Pro 2 for a very good price if you shop around.

    I got my original Surface Pro at a fantastic price, and although the battery life is poor compared to the later ones, it's still one heck of a piece of kit and will run almost any program.

    Or go and buy an ipad or android powered tablet, although I think you will be disappointed at them, but then you won't be ranting at MS for something it either had no control of or ranting for the sake of it when there are plenty of other products you can buy.

    The majority of the RT tablets sold were the Surface and they are available with 64GB. The VivoTab RT is also available with 64 gigs. You're infuriated with MS but it appears your gripe is with Nokia for not offering what you want. Microsoft has a 64GB RT tablet, what's the beef?

    my main probably is why have an OS for tablets that you can't install apps on SD card, even on some sites with 32gb model its advertised that you can install games on SD cards.

    His main bone of contention seems to be that the OS doesn't support app installation on SD cards, a complaint I find entirely valid. Yes, there are 64GB and even 128 GB Windows RT tablets but personally I consider the 32 GB ones to be close to useless if the user is even moderately interested in installing more than a few Store apps. I'm hoping the ARM version of Threshold will be made available for all the existing RT tablets and will finally fix this major lacuna.

    you get it and moreover, nokia and microsoft had a partnership when the lumia 2520 was made.
