Next Surface(s) - no kickstand please! (Disclaimer: Nitty Gritty)

I don't think it is a good idea to have a kickstand when they can do some kind of a stand within the cover. They need to steal this idea from others if they have to.

Also, using a kickstand and "landscape web-cam" for desk use will kill the portability of a tablet. I am sure no one is doing documents and webcam at the same time on a small 10" screen.

You know, I generally like the portrait mode better for a tablet because 70-80% of stuff I do is web-browsing and webcam and kickstand come in the way no matter what they say.
