Apple is keeping a close eye on Microsoft’s new tablet. CEO Steve Ballmer revealed the company’s uber-hyped new tablet at an event in Los Angeles Monday: the Microsoft Surface.
A magnetic, clip-on cover includes a multi-touch keyboard and trackpad, which Sinofsky says is twice as easy as typing on glass. One version of the Surface runs on a Nvidia ARM processor and offers Windows RT. The other runs on an Intel processor and comes with Windows 8 Pro.Both have a 10.6-inch screen HD display.
The RT version is 9.3mm thick; the Windows 8 Pro version is 13.5mm thick.The RT version offers microSD and USB 2.0 ports; the Windows 8 Pro version has microSDXC and USB 3.0 ports. Both have 2×2 MIMO antennae.
Both have a tough, Gorilla Glass 2.0 screen with native 1080p resolution. The Windows 8 Pro version supports digital ink and comes with a pen. Its “palm block” stops the Surface from taking touch input when the pen is close enough for writing. Both come with a kickstand for movie-watching and a built-in camera angled at 22 degrees.
The RT version holds 32 GB or 64 GB; the Windows 8 Pro version holds 64 GB or 128 GB. (Microsoft)
