Microsoft Announce Surface Tablet PCs

I know that Microsoft had a big announcement at an event in Hollywood yesterday but I never saw a Microsoft branded tablet being it! I do however when thinking about this move more have to think a Surface branded tablet is well within a product range Microsoft have already.

Surface tables have been around for some years now and not so far back Surface 2.0 was released, albeit now with a name change to Pixelsense so this new Tablet falls into the smaller brother or sister of Pixelsense.

“Microsoft unveiled Surface: PCs built to be the ultimate stage for Windows. Company executives showed two Windows tablets and accessories that feature significant advances in industrial design and attention to detail. Surface is designed to seamlessly transition between consumption and creation, without compromise. It delivers the power of amazing software with Windows and the feel of premium hardware in one exciting experience.”

Having only viewed the screenshots of the product so far, I like the look and design of it, I also having been using Windows 8 for some time think that Windows 8 will fit this product really well.

I think the amount of various colours that the screen cover/keyboard (see 1st picture below) has will appeal to many who just want to be different, the built in kickstand is really good touch also.

Big question is will it be as all tech writers put it, an “Apple Killer” and the direct comparison here is the iPad, I doubt it in honesty but it will be the best shot out there to steal some market share from Apple’s iPad.
