Microsoft release the Microsoft surface tablet

surface tablet

Last Tuesday Microsoft decided to up their game in the tablet market and it’s looking like they are doing quite a good job of it. They released a 10.6 inch touch screen table with their own surface technology. The device will be extremely competitive spec wise with the top end model running Windows 8 Pro and having an Ivy bridge chipset under the hood and the lower end model sporting an ARM chipset which will be running the Windows RT OS. The display is reported to ship with 32 and 64 GB versions. The device itself will have PVD (vapor-deposit magnesium) casing, which is the same liquid metal technology Apple was reported looking into making. The display is reported to ship with 32 and 64 GB versions.

If any of these features need to be replaced in the future, sites such as Geeks.com make that easy to do.

The top end model will also include features such as a USB 3.0 port, the device really is beautiful Mircosoft have out done themselves with the desig of this device you can see in the video below it is really a thin and well made product. The device also include an incredibily thin keyboard which has the ability to be used with the multi touch gestures such as pinch and enlarging.

It will be interested to see what Apple do with the next iPad to try and combat this, there seems to have been some great ideas in this product and looks a lot more likely to take off than the Zune did. While the official prices haven’t been released it is rumored to be priced similarly to the iPad.

Let us know what you think about the tablet in the comments below.
