Microsoft introduced their new Microsoft Surface Tablet yesterday.
The Tablet has many features such as 10.6 inch high-definition touch screen, a full keyboard that also acts as the cover, built-in kick stand and front and rear facing cameras. Microsoft promises the Surface Tablet will have a similar price tag to the iPad, which currently goes anywhere from $499-$849.
The 1.5 pound device isn’t expected to go on sale until the Fall; and it will be linked with the debut of the Windows 8 operating system. Microsoft ensures that Windows software will play a major role in the mobile computing market.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that the sleek new device will be as useful for consuming entertainment as it will be for creating documents “without compromising the productivity that PCs are uniquely known for.”
It’s a “tablet that’s a great PC —a PC that’s a great tablet,” said Steven Sinofsky, president of Microsoft’s Windows division.
