It has been a while since I’ve done a 30 Days series. Now, I am preparing to immerse myself in both the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and a Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone at the same time.

I have actually engaged in 30 Days series for both of these devices / platforms before. I wrote 30 Days with Windows Phone 7 at PCWorld in late 2011, and I did a 30 Days with Surface Pro at the beginning of 2013. Both have come a long way since those previous 30 Days series, so now it’s time to dive in again and see what’s new, what’s fixed, and what still needs to be improved upon.

Buckle up. It’s going to be 60 days’ worth of posts as I alternate between 30 Days with Surface Pro 3, and 30 Days with Windows Phone 8.1.

Follow along on the new 30 Days series.
