You are running MS Access and Visio on a phone? Things must be amazing in Japan.

No i meant everything else. Why would I need Microsoft Access in order to do that?

What I like about the Surface product is that it does everything I need to do in my personal and professional life. I'm excited about what Microsoft is doing because I see them allowing me to do all of this on a device that fits in my pocket. This is a sea change and I am looking forward to seeing where it leads.

If you're pairing it with a mouse, keyboard and monitor at work, it might need to run Access...

I use Office on an HP Envy x2. It's doable, but not comfortable. And forget it if you don't have a mouse connected. Trying to do anything with your fingers inside any of those applications is a real pain in the buttcrack.
I wanted to generate a presentation on my Surface Pro yesterday.
I switched to the Metro version of OneNote instead to make use of the WACOM stylus.
In PowerPoint it hadn't been much fun and I didn't want to stick to mouse and keyboard alone.
I'd wish for Metro versions of the entire Office suite. But still: Better than what can be done on Android or iPad.

No, unfortunately not!
They seem to be easily portable, but there's no "one for all" as with iOS or Android (yet?).

I'm sure Office is getting touch updates even as we speak.

I checked out the W3 810 today at Staples.

I was browsing and the screen is beyond meh. I'll wait for other devices in this form factor.

The Office package was not installed. Is a product code included with the device so one can get access?

This video is very funny and instructive, it shows what real multi-tasking can do and mobile OS's can't deliver.

A lot of people have forgotten what full power machines can do, or perhaps they never knew.

New Acer Iconia W3 announced

There will be an update to the display.
The TN panel will be replaced by an IPS panel.
Rumor has it, availability will be September, for the IFA exhibition.
Price remains the same.
Not for me, I'm not into Acer and don't need 8" for a Windows tablet. But I guess, in general the market potential is huge.

Speaking of Acer. I have long avoided them too, from the days when they were just a cheap product at Circuit City.

But, yesterday, my wife got her Acer C7 (4GB RAM, 320GB HDD) Chromebook from Amazon for $219, and I must say she is impressed. Me too.
