Surface Windows RT

Although Microsoft did not keep the fact that a good amount of the SSD storage space in the Surface RT tablet will be used by the Windows RT OS along with other software a secret, a lawsuit was filed by someone against the company claiming that he was not aware that only 16GB of the total 32GB storage space will be available for the users of the Microsoft Surface tablet.

A recent report from revealed that the listing of the tablet at the Microsoft Store underwent a minor yet notable modification. The listing of the tablet now informs potential buyers that the tablet features software that helps in productivity, and the software takes up a good amount of storage in the Surface RT Tablet. A link to the FAQ page of the Surface storage was included in the listing as well.

The company also indicated that the storage of the Surface tablet is expandable up to 64GB using the microSD memory card port. Although the company made the limitations of the storage space of the Microsoft Surface tablet rather clear, the new stipulation on the product listing on the Microsoft Store is obviously another effort of the company in preventing additional problems similar to the lawsuit filed earlier in the month.

Another report from Digitimes indicated that the Surface RT tablet orders to supply companies in the fourth quarter was supposedly reduced by Microsoft to around two million units from the original four million units. However, it should be taken into consideration that the source of the report has a less than ideal accuracy rate when it to comes to these reports although it may have been accurate in some reports in the past.
