Welcome to another Good e-Reader Comparison Video! Today, we take a look at the flagship tablet that has been leading the charge for Windows 8 adoption, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. We compare the overall Windows 8 reading experience on a tablet whose primary focus is reading digital books, newspapers, graphic novels and eBooks – the Kobo Arc 10 HD.
The premise of this video is not to pick a clearly defined winner, but to open up the same content on each device and show how they are different from each other. Obviously Microsoft has a bit of an advantage with being able to run legacy apps, so you can use the full version of Microsoft Office, Adobe Master Collection, or even League of Legends. No, this comparison is to look at how Windows and Android handle the same content, and this should provide a more immersive comparison that has trickle down effects into other aspects of the tablets.
