Another video of the Microsoft Surface appears, showing features that set it apart from the iPad

Besides the two covers, the video shows other features that are a part of the Microsoft Surface but can't be found on the Apple iPad such as a microSD slot which expands storage on the tablet. There is also the kickstand which is another feature that you won't find on Apple's tablet.
Available with an Intel Processor as the Microsoft Surface (8 Pro), or with an ARM supported processor as the Microsoft Surface (RT), you can get a tablet that allows you to take your office on the go or one that is great for gaming, watching video and keeping up with your social networks. The Microsoft Surface will launch on October 26th.
- Display 10.6" 1366 x 768 pixels
- Camera 1 megapixel
- Processor NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30, Quad-core, 1300 MHz
- Storage 32 GB

How much did Microsoft pay for this article? But really.... How much

So any news article is somehow paid for, rather than simply newsworthy? Unlike other articles, seemingly predominantly apple-related, which are regurgitated ad infinitum about any possible detail or change, this actually relates to something exciting and truly innovative, something which pushes the envelope of technology, use, and fiction, rather than trying repeatedly to eke out thinner and more fragile devices with marginally improved capabilities just to sell devices that only do, rather than inspire or instigate creativity

I am impressed. Was looking for a reason to possibly dump my tab 10.1. This might be my answer. Need to do a little more research plus pricing and carrier availability will be needed to make a solid decision.

THE Biggest difference between Win 8 and IOS/Android is: LIVE TILES. They are like widgets-even better- which really make u feel alive and connected. This connection is way beyond the other two OSs mentioned above. They have dead, static interfaces. How can anyone see a comparison. In the phone segment, Nokia build quality is another feature which samsung could never boast, nor can apple do it anymore

i will never by Surface, the reason is that windows store lacks multitouch apps, both camera are 720p though no 1 uses tablet camera for recording but at times you have, the screen is s**t, and the processor is crap, they could have used snapdragon.....Office is the only cool feature of surface and as it is coming to android and ios, i guess that there is no need to get surface

the for real PC users are waiting for the Surface PRO because it runs full desktop PC and laptop programs where as the "surface RT only runs Microsoft Rt tiles style apps that are on the window 8 start screen. Microsoft is trying to get as many developers as it can to write the tile style apps for the Surface RT that just went on sale. do not worry the apps will come because this is a great General tablet computer like the Ipad or the High end Androin Jelly bean tablet computers. it's Unique design and the fact that old Microsoft will support the Surface RT to the max because it is Microsoft's low end tablet computer. it's HIch end is the Microsoft Surface pro which runs full PC program .
