Microsoft Unveils New Tablet Device Surface

Published 3 years, 1 month ago by Dan Page

Microsoft has lifted the veil on its new tablet device by the name of Surface.

The device features an ultra thin keyboard built right into its cover, a kickstand in the body and both front and rear-facing HD video cameras.

"Conceived, designed and engineered entirely by Microsoft employees," comes the official blurb. The Surface also packs a full USB port along with a 10.6 inch screen.

It’ll be possible to buy Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro models, the former being available on the day of the Windows 8 release and the latter following around 90 days later.

As far as the price goes, Microsoft has simply said that it’ll be "competitive with a comparable ARM tablet or Intel Ultrabook-class PC".
