Microsoft launched its first commercial device that Microsoft has directly designed and sold named as Microsoft Surface. This is mean, Microsoft officially entered the tablet competition with Apple. Previously, Microsoft popular device are mouse, keyboard, music player and games console, XBox.
Microsoft Surface tablet have standard features like other tablet specs, a 10.6 inch high definition touchscreen and front and back camera. It’s 9.3mm thin, has full size USB 2.0 ports, a massive kickstand and weighs only 1.5 lbs. The casing made out of magnesium and screen is covered with Gorilla Glass 2.
What I was look at the new tablet Microsoft is the Surface has bring new innovation of tablet. For example, the device’s cover flips down to become a full keyboard. This cover looks copy Apple’s smartcover too. Surface give a kickstand at the backside to make it the tablet stand. It is not just a tablet. Of course, Microsoft Surface coming with their upcoming operating system, Windows 8 tablet version called Windows RT. That operating system will run on microchips designed by ARM.
Microsoft haven’t yet give specifics memory details but the company said the Windows RT version will be available sometime this fall in 32- and 64-gigabyte versions and will be priced “competitively” to other tablets on the market. Apple’s most basic version of the iPad retails for $499.
This coming Microsoft Surface will give another alternative tablet in the future.
