Metro-like apps will increase in number, but I seriously do not need 700,000 of them. As a productivity device, I need only a few good ones for traveling, social media interacting, and enlarging what my Samsung Phablet does anyways. I like being able to use what my desktop PC does.
My Galaxy Note 2, iPad Mini and Macbook Pro are great media consumption devices, especially when I travel. I can watch movies, play music, even do some of my work on the latter. These products have terrific battery life, but the iPad is just my toy. I was hoping this Surface Pro could replace the Apple devices, but it doesn't, because of poor battery life, used up HD space and an OS that is ambiguous as a desktop or tablet. Will MS Office ever be optimized for touch-friendly interaction? Now that would be a game changer!
My wish list:
1) Better battery life
2) More HD space
3) More productivity apps (i.e., MS Office Touch) optimized for touch
