Microsoft Surface tablet - in video

Microsoft yesterday announced two Windows 8 tablets, built by the company itself, and due out in the Autumn. Here's a video of the Microsoft Surface tablet.

The Surface tablets come in two flavours: the Surface RT runs Windows RT on ARM technology, and there's a heavier Intel version that runs Windows 8 Pro.

Microsoft does not have pricing for either of the Tablets available for the press yet, however they did give rough guidelines for when each tablet will go on sale. Surface for Windows RT will go on sale at the same time as Windows 8, which is autumn 2012. Surface for Windows 8 Pro will go on sale three months after the Windows 8 launch.

Steven Sinofsky at the Microsoft press event in LA "We see a tablet that's designed the way Windows has been designed. A tablet that works and plays the way you want to. A tablet that's a great PC. A new type of computing: Surface. USB 2.0, thin, feels natural in hand. First PC with VaporMg Case."

"...under 1.5 pounds, 676 grams...Permanent scratch and wear resistant surface. Accentuates the unique feel of surface. Has access to all of the Windows apps for entertainment. Has optically bonded 10.6-inch display. That will minimize glare and make it good for reading.
