Is the Windows Surface an iPad and Android tablet killer?
Microsoft recently released information on a new tablet they are working on. The Microsoft website has opened a new section focused on the tablet they call the "Surface". The "Surface" is not yet released, but prototype images and a commercial video have been posted.
The "Surface" has many features that are distinctly different from other tablets. For example, the "Surface" seemingly comes with a colored keyboard to fit into the bottom of the tablet for easy typing. Most keyboards for tablets have to be bought from an external source other than the original provider. This piece makes the "Surface" almost seem like a mini laptop. Also,the keyboard doubles as a cover when not being used.
Another part of the "Surface" that makes it unique is a built-in stand for propping up the tablet for an easier view.
Now, in the video, you can catch a glimpse of some other features not in the gallery. There seems to be one USB slot and a Micro HDMI slot, as well. What looks like a sound bumper is also located on the right hand side of the tablet.
Of course, these are just exterior features of the "Surface", but the processing system and the hardware capabilities are still unknown. We believe from some images that it is maybe running a downplayed version of the new Windows OS coming at the end of the year.
