Before the storm.
Before everyone gets up in arms about the Surface review (a la Lumia 900), read this.
7.0 IS NOT A BAD SCORE
In fact, it is actually pretty good.
First off, it is not a 10. Nothing is perfect
Next, it is not a 9. As good as it is, there are inherent problems (such as the fledgling app store)
It is not an 8 either.
7 seems to be about the right score - it is a good device with a few kinks that need to be worked out.
Don't see 7 as a bad score.
