More free things for the Microsoft Surface RT buyers. Lately, this company has been trying with anything to attract customers that will buy its products. They have begun with many updates of their Windows OS, then new Surface RT products and now a free cover that will go alongside with the purchased Surface RT device. This is a nice thing coming from Microsoft because having a Touch Cover with your tablet proved to be handy and makes the typing experience a lot easier.
This Cover gift starts as of today and it will last for a limited period of time and it’s available only for people living in the U.S and Canada. If you wanted the Surface RT for a long time but you haven’t been motivated enough the make an offer, now it’s the right time for that. These Touch covers are priced over $100 and now you will get it for free. You will be able to choose from white, red, black and cyan color options.
This was posted by Microsoft on its official blog but it doesn’t show any detailed information for how long this offer will last. The sales of this device didn’t went as planned but some sources close to the company have said that this is not Microsoft’s last try of making its sales number go up. 1 million Surface RT devices were sold in the first quarter and we could notice some big disappointments on the CEO’s faces in the company. But they are trying to stay positive saying that the things will go well in near future.
This tablet is not bad at all because it includes a quad-core 1.Ghz processor with 2GB of RAM. It has a 10.6-inch display with a resolution of 1336 x 768 pixels which offers 148 ppi. The camera is true disappointment because it features only 1-mpix. But to be honest it’s equipped with some nice features and the OS itself is in a period of progress.
If you choose to buy it and receive this cover as a gift you will get a useful kick-stand that will give you great lap-top experience with removable display. The OS is a great fit on it and the design is very stylish. However, it lacks great apps selection and Microsoft could have done more to the display quality. But, all in all, it’s a pretty cool device.
