imageMobileTechReview have posted their detailed review of the Microsoft Surface RT, which includes this 33 minute video review of this Microsoft WindowsRT tablet.

They conclude:

Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet isn’t just an attention-getting beast because it’s the company’s first computing product. It’s rich and immersive tablet thanks to attractive video and music players, excellent news, weather, stocks and sports apps and it offers some of the strengths of a full Windows machine. And that’s the plus as well as the caveat: you get the same UI, Windows desktop and largely the same MS Office suite as you do on Windows 8 Pro machines, but you can’t run .exe applications meant for Windows 7 computers. Is that a deal breaker? At launch it might be for some shoppers who are understandably captivated by the several hundred thousands of apps available for iOS and Android. But don’t fool yourself: This is Microsoft and Windows. The apps will very likely come in large numbers. If you’re willing to wait, the Microsoft Surface RT is an excellent tablet for productivity-oriented users and those who crave Adobe Flash Player support.
