Microsoft announces “Surface” Windows 8 tablet

Head over to the Microsoft Surface Forums to talk about the brand new Windows Tablets!

Microsoft has been holding a super secret event tonight and they’ve finally took the wraps off a new tablet called “Surface”. Keep it locked to this page for more as it develops.

It has a liquid metal case, which makes it ultra rigid and lightweight. The sides of the tablet are tapered at a 22 degree angle. The screen comes in at 10.6″. The back of the tablet has a built in kickstand for easy viewing. Surface has a magnetic screen cover which has an integrated multi-touch keyboard that is only 3mm thin. Surface will be for Windows RT, and full on Windows 8. The tablet will also have an optional keyboard that works more traditionally with physical keys.

Microsoft is taking a big step into their own ecosystem with Surface, and so far it looks like the right move.

    micro SD? normal SD? USB? RGB? HMDI? Screen technology? price? availability? price on the keyboard/screenprotector?

    Will never be getting this product. The OS is crap. Will always stick with the iPad

    Good for you I guess. I on the other hand can’t wait to finally have access to ALL my desktop apps (MS office!)
