Meet Microsoft’s New Surface Tablet

Microsoft’s brand new Surface Tablet is a 10.6″ screen powered by Windows 8 and comes in two versions. Both are equipped with touch screens. One will be powered by an ARM processor and will likely be a traditional style tablet running Windows RT. The other will be powered by Intel’s 22nm Ivy Bridge chips running the desktop version of Windows 8.

The Cover doubles as a full-sized keyboard complete with built-in trackpad. Oh yeah, it also comes with a kickstand to sit upright.

Is it cool? Possibly. Is it functional? Looks like it. Is it revolutionary? Hardly.

Look — it’s a PC .. It’s an iPad .. No, it’s a kinda Ultrabook .. sorta.

Obviously the Surface is a tablet/laptop hybrid meant to appease both worlds. When you put it all together it certainly is intriguing.

It’s a decent demonstration of what thinking out of the box can create. Albeit computers have improved over the years, they haven’t really changed all that much.

Maybe Microsoft’s “Surface” tablet will finally wake the PC industry up.

So what do I think? Well, until I’ve actually used one I don’t have a clue. It also depends on price which is yet unavailable. Until then, watch the video and you be the judge.

Do I want one? Well that’s an even more intriguing question. I’m not sold on Windows 8 yet, so you tell me.

Was it smart for Microsoft to come out with a brand new hardware product with an untried operating system. Well, um … we shall see.
