Microsoft Is Shipping Surface Tablet Orders Already

Microsoft has commenced the shipment process for its Surface tablet that comes equipped with Windows RT.

With a few days to go until Microsoft’s Surface tablet officially launches on October 26, WPcentral has confirmed that customers have started to receive confirmation emails regarding their orders for the tablet being shipped.

Demand for Microsoft's Surface tablet has been unprecedented ever since the device's pre-orders commenced. A day after it began, the least-expensive variant of Surface sold out, while the two more expensive models followed a few days later.

Windows RT, however, consumes a considerable proportion from the tablet's storage capacity. The 32GB version seemingly has as much as 12GB less storage on the device due to the operating system, leaving users with 20GB of space to utilize.

    And once again you reiterate this misinformation. Let me quote someone from the comments of your other article.

    The source never stated 12 gigs was the install. The guy said after the OS, Office and "A bunch of apps you will be left with 20 GBs.

    dimarAny word on how good Adobe Flash support on Windows RT?

    Really, who cares? Is IE10 doesn't support it I'm sure chrome or firefox for RT will offer it, unlike how those browsers have been hamstrung by apple on the iOS platform.

    I care. I need good flash support on a tablet to read Marvel unlimited comics. It only works through a web browser, but Android browsers with flash installed can't handle it right.

    Desktop IE10 on PC has flash integrated just like Chrome.
