So Microsoft today introduced their Surface tablets which will be Microsoft branded. The first is their Windows RT tablet which is ARM-based. This big boy (10.6" screen) will feature NVIDIA Tegra-based processor weighing in at a 676 grams (1.5 lbs) and only 9.3 millimeters thick. It will come with either 32GB or 64GB capacity. No details on screen resolution. Price was not announced but Microsoft stated it will be competitively priced. Should be available around Windows 8 launch (fall 2012).
One neat feature is the smartcover that has a built-in multi-touch keyboard and trackpad.
(Editorial Opinion: I doubt this will have traction with consumers. Maybe corporate but Microsoft is so behind. Apple has been making grounds in enterprise. More and more iPhones and iPads are becoming standard corporate-issued equipment. Also the pricing on these Surface tablets will keep consumers away.)
