Microsoft unveils Surface Tablet

On Monday Microsoft unveiled a new series of Surface tablets - one running an ARM processor featuring Windows RT,

and one with a third-generation Intel Core processor featuring Windows 8 Pro. Surface is also the name of table and poster-sized touch screen computers that Microsoft has pitched to the business market for use in restaurants, shops, bars and other venues. Surface is designed such that it allows seamless transition between consumption and creation. It delivers the power of amazing software with Windows and the feel of premium hardware in one exciting experience.

Some of the key features of Surface for Windows RT are:

  • a 9.3 mm angled, all-magnesium VaporMg case that weighs just around 676 g
  • a 10.6-inch (26.9 centimeter) Gorilla Glass 2-covered high-definition screen
  • a magnetically attached cover that also includes a full multi-touch keyboard and trackpad
  • microSD, USB 2.0, Micro HD Video, 2×2 MIMO antennae
  • memory can be configured to 32 GB or 64 GB
  • Office ‘15’ Apps

Some of key features of Windows 8 Pro:

  • a 13.5 mm VaporMg case that weighs around 903 g
  • a 10.6” ClearType Full HD Display screen
  • microSDXC, USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort Video, 2×2 MIMO antennae
  • a touch Cover, type Cover, Pen with Palm Block

The unique VaporMg casing enables a built in kickstand that lets you transition Surface from active use to passive consumption. The 3mm touch cover has a unique pressure sensitive technology which enables you to touch type significantly faster than with an on-screen keyboard. It also acts as a protective cover by clikcing into Surface via a built in magnetic connector, forming a natural spine like you find on a book. You can also click in a 5 mm thin Type Cover that adds moving keys for a more traditional typing feel.

Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer described the Surface tablet as a tablet that “works and plays” when he showed it off at a press event in Los Angeles. He further said, ” It’s a whole new community of computing devices from Microsoft. It embodies the notion of hardware and software really pushing each other.”
