Thanks to the HD video out port, you will be able to share your holiday snaps, music and videos on a large screen, or via a projector for true large screen media enjoyment. With a full-sized USB 2.0 port it'll be simple to plug in peripheral devices, such as an external hard drive, to your Surface RT and transfer your digital media.
With integrated IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0 you will be guaranteed clutter-free connections and will be able to easily connect to a WiFi hotspot for a quick status update when you are out and about grabbing a coffee, or to your home or office network for more intensive internet use.
For uncompromised support and flexibility, the Microsoft Surface RT features an integrated kickstand which will allow you to exploit and enjoy a complete hands-free entertainment experience. Whether you are watching a film, or holding a conversation via Skype and the front-facing 720p HD video camera, you can rest assured that the Surface will stand solidly unaided.
Front and rear-facing 720p HD video cameras
The Microsoft Surface RT boasts two HD video cameras allowing for maximum flexibility and ease of use. The rear camera is angled to shoot straight ahead when the Kickstand is flipped out to take perfectly aligned, jitter-free shots, whilst the front facing option will make video calls via your tablet a reality.
Equipped with LifeCam, with TrueColor Technology, you can be sure that your video will remain bright, colourful and vivid in virtually all lighting conditions – ideal for catching up with far flung friends and relatives. The custom lens design also features an ambient light sensor which has been designed to maximise light intake and provide sharp focus so your photos will be crisp, blur free and spot on every time.
An option for truly convertible freedom
In addition to the 5-point multi-touch screen, ideal for pinching, scrolling and swiping your way through apps and browsing your favourite web pages, the Microsoft Surface RT is compatible with Microsoft's innovative Touch and Type Covers (both sold separately).
Offering a sleek, spill-resistant exterior, the Touch Cover boasts a QWERTY keyboard layout, Windows and media shortcuts and a laptop-style touchpad - ideal if you fancy finishing off a report or simply updating your Facebook status on a long train journey. When folded back, the Touch Cover automatically disables keystrokes for a full touchscreen experience and when closed it will turn off your display and protect it from scratches when stored in a bag or briefcase.
If you prefer a more conventional keyboard and a more traditional working experience, the Type Cover is the option for you. With a full row of function keys, the Type Cover marries the speed and comfort of a traditional keyboard whilst taking up little space thus maintaining the portability and flexibility of the Microsoft Surface RT.
Mobile Broadband – Online on the Go
A tablet is a truly mobile device. It is designed so you can get the information you need, for work and pleasure, whenever you want it and wherever you are. But only if you are connected.
Mobile broadband is the best way to get online on the go. If you choose a Wifi Tablet you are relying on being within reach of a Wifi hot spot such as an Internet Cafe. This can be expensive, both for the Internet access and the coffee! A Mobile Wifi gives you a hot spot in your pocket; it picks either a 3G or 4G signal wherever you are, at speeds that will amaze. Each mobile Wifi lets you connect up to 5 devices at the same time - great if you are in a group. Also perfect if you are using it at home, as the whole family can connect at the same time.
For more information ask in store about how you and your tablet can get online on the go.
