On article Reviewers offer first look at Microsoft Surface tablet (121 comments in total)

Under Pros, you have:
"USB 2.0: Compatible with current accesories and peripherals."

I think that should read "Compatible with *some* accessories and peripherals."

Many USB devices require software drivers. These are currently built for running on Wintel hardware - NOT for ARM hardware.

This will also be a problem for Bluetooth devices. For example, since the Surface RT has no GPS capability, I'd want to use my Bluetooth GPS logger with it. But I can't since the software driver is for Wintel hardware only...
