Well well well, cannot say we saw this coming but we do like indeed. Microsoft has just announced the launch of their first ever tablet device called Surface. It may be a little bit of a late entry to the tablet game but they have certainly landed with a bang. Not only does the device boast a touch keyboard but some serious (almost unreal) specs too. Have a look at the Surface launch video at the bottom of this post.

A lot of people will be overjoyed with a microsoft tablet with such serious power but we doubt Apple are, haha. It may not be the iPad killer, but its surely going to be a serious contender. Hopefully the price is reasonable.

Surface is thin, light and it has a great battery. At 9.3mm, Surface for Windows RT is just thin enough to still sport a full sized USB port. Print, share, or charge your phone on the go.

Surface has a 10.6″, 16:9 widescreen HD Display. Microsoft’s ClearType HD Display technology delivers a great picture for movies. An ultra-wide viewing angle makes it easy for your friends to share in the vibrant experience.

Some activities call for a keyboard. Surface comes with an integrated Kickstand and a revolutionary, 3mm thin, pressure sensitive cover that doubles as a fully functioning keyboard and trackpad. Your Touch Cover connects to your Surface with a single magnetic click.
