Have you ever seen (or experienced) unpacking electronic equipment when checking luggage before boarding a plane or Eurostar? Phone (s), music player, tablet, computer, camera … are spread out on the treadmill, giving the owner the appearance of a demonstrator fair.
The convergence, the ability to integrate new devices features several older objects now coming to maturity. It is not yet the all-in-one, but with Microsoft, the all-in-two.
Surface Pro 3
How can we still call this tablet device? Of course, the keyboard (magnetic mount) is supplied as an option, which is also a meanness, especially for models with nearly € 2,000. The 12-inch (30.48 cm) display is beautiful and easy to use, sufficient connections. But it’s under the hood that is the difference. This “tablet” running with Intel i3, i5 or i7, complemented by storage for 64 to 512 GB and 4 to 8 GB of RAM. Needless to say, the beast turned all software, including heavier. (800 to € 1,950)
Nokia Lumia 930
To complement the capabilities of this tablet / PC, and stay in the same software environment ( same address book, even native cloud computing …), the new flagship of Microsoft / Nokia is needed. It is regrettable memory capped at 32 GB (15 GB more in the cloud) and a self-perfectible. For the rest, this is the perfect device to communicate, move, listen to music … and take photos: 20 megapixel sensor, dual LED flash, Full HD OLED screen 12.7 cm … No devices compact cameras do as well. (450 €)
The total cost could be high (up to € 2,400), but it must be compared to that of all appliances replaced.
