About Microsoft Surface Tablet :
Microsoft wants to regain its lost market share. It has recently launched Surface Tablet. In a mysterious event organized in Los Angeles, this tablet was marketed as an iPad killer. The tablet would be released for public in the second half of 2012. The tablet has been designed and engineered by experts at Microsoft.
Design of Microsoft Surface Tablet :
The design of Microsoft Surface tablet is inspired by iPad. There are two versions of Surface tablets- Surface for Windows RT and Surface for Window 8 Pro. Both these tablets have impressive designs. It is the internal architecture and power that separates both the versions.
The front face of the tablet has a sleek black glass made of magnesium alloy chassis. There is the Windows logo on chassis. Microsoft Surface Tablet has a 10.6-inch screen. A space of half inch is left in the margins so that you can hold the Surface comfortably. The Windows logo is basically a touch button here that activates the start screen.
There is an in-built stand in the back that looks hinge-like. This hinge is held by an array of magnets for support. The smart cover is similar to iPad 3 cover. This removable cover has a keyboard on it.
A number of ports are given at the sides. There is a magnetic keyboard connector at the bottom side of Microsoft Surface Tablet. The upper side of screen has a power button. There are speakers on both sides. Other features include dual microphone jack, micro SD Card Slot, USB 3.0 port and Micro HDMI port for HD output.
Touch Cover of Microsoft Surface Tablet :
The USP of the Surface Tablet is its touch cover. This ultra-thin cover is inspired from the Smart Cover of iPad. The cover has a keyboard imprinted on it. The keys have about 7 layers of metals which work by sensing pressure and speed. Microsoft claims that this keyboard can be easily used by users having typing speed of more than 50 words per minute. The touch cover is available in five colors- white, black, red, cyan and magenta.
At this point of time, Microsoft is a bit cagey about the Surface Tablet. Due to this reason, no one has been able to use or review this product extensively. The company has successfully produced an awesome product which may take on the iPad 3 but one thing that might hurt its growth is its high price.
