The geek in me is jumping up and down and drooling over this afternoon’s announcement of the Surface, Microsoft’s tablet! I have been waiting for this for a long time and I knew it would come at some point based on the upcoming Windows 8 platform.
I love that they built in the kickstand and the cover turns into the keyboard even! Very clever! There will be two versions it seems – both sound great, but for heavy users the pro version will be the one to get for sure. There are different colors of covers available – this is my only negative I’ve seen so far as I’m just not a fan of the colors shown. The surface will also comes with Office installed I believe. Nothing was mentioned yet about when this will be available and the pricing, but it should be coming soon.
I watched TheVerge coverage of this event for photos and details from someone in the audience – no live actual broadcast was allowed. My Twitter pals also helped. Remember that this info is coming 2nd hand really and so some details may be a little off. I’m sure everything will be revealed soon to all of us!
Disclosure: While I am part of the #WindowsChampions, this information was not shared with me in advance. I learned along with everyone else and opinions are my own.
