To be fair, Microsoft did a pretty good job with the Spot watch - but the market wasn't ready then. So I don't blame them for trying again now that the market has been 'prepped'
So I wasn't too surprised when in Dubai I happened upon a Samsung shop (along similar lines to an Apple Shop) in the Dubai Mall (alongside a [small] Nokia shop. But ...
... was a little surprised to find a similar Samsung branded shop in my local Mall in Bristol (Cribbs Causeway).
Looks like they are ahead of Microsoft in opening retail outlets, (though still a long way behind Apple).
Are there any Microsoft shops outside the USA yet?
@Proton2:I think you can change setting in Windows so that when you close the Surface keyboard onto the Surface it powers down (instead of saving state) which might work better for you.
If I am correct then the setting can be found in Control Panel->Power Options->Choose what closing the lid does (appreciating that you don't have a lid - but give it a try anyway).
Just joined, only a Pro 2 but nice spec:
