Someone asked me today whether the Mail app in Windows 8.1 is going to get a major upgrade. It was pretty clear that my associate didn’t enjoy using that app with his Surface RT.
That conversation inspired me to reread this Engadget review:
There’s no other way than to come out and say it: we are extremely disappointed in the … email app. So much so, in fact, that … mail support may be the largest factor in killing its status as a productivity device. Don’t get us wrong, the application is just fine for anyone who wants to do light email, but it lacks the power and convenience that frequent-emailers require.
That was just one of several “severe issues about the device.” So, which gadget were they talking about? Maybe not the one you think.
Oh well, I’m sure the big update a year after the original release will fix things.
