I'm so glad I ditched my iPad and traveled with my Surface Pro intead.

There is not much that needs to be said. The iPad is great when your pooping, or in bed. But when I am walking around NYC on my trip there is nothing that an iPad can do that my Nexus 4 can't. Find food, hail a cab, listen to music, etc.

But when I hit the coffee shop, or was on the plane, man did I get work done.

  • Excel
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • worked on my app with Visual Studio
  • accessed some encrypted docs in the cloud with Wuala

Then after words, killed some time with Fresh Paint and Pocket Tanks, watched some short videos and listened to music.

I guess I still prefer the iPad when pooping.

PS and this is the Surface Pro 1.

PSS Also of note, with T-Mobile I added 2.5GB of 4g tethering for an additional $10 per month. Verizon on the iPad is $20 for 1GB. I hate the way Apple locks you into shitty prices that way. No choice, no competition.
