Microsoft dismissed rumors of Barnes and Noble involvement in the mysterious Microsoft event and confirmed that it will sell its own Microsoft-branded Windows 8 RT tablet under the Surface name.When I saw the liveblog and the video I was like Wow ! That’s super cool from Microsoft.Is this the next iPad killer we have been waiting for ?
This Nvidia powered Tegra 3 ARM Chip is a 10.6-inch optically-bonded windows 8 RT tablet and measures just 9.3mm thick This also comes with an all-magnesium VaporMg case(Full magnesium case) that weighs just under 1.3 pounds.
Some of other cool features this tablet comes are a built-in stand, twin 2×2 MIMO antennas for super fast WiFi, Gorilla Glass 2-covered HD display. Not unlike Apple’s last two generations, there’s a magnetically attached cover, but it’s just more than just a protector: It includes a full multi-touch keyboard and trackpad for those keyboard lovers.
As for expansion, you’ll get one each of HDMI, microSD and USB 2.0 (sorry folks, no 3.0) as well as either 32GB or 64GB of storage, while software includes the usual Windows 8 and a newly Metrofied version of Netflix. The Surface for Windows RT should arrive roughly in step with Windows 8, but Microsoft is only promising pricing “competitive” with similar ARM tablets in this range — and in case you’re looking for a tablet with more grunt, you can spring for the Intel Ivy Bridge -packing Surface for Windows 8 Pro.Check out for more at Microsoft Surface Official Website
