This is no normal tablet…No normal notebook…No normal laptop…
That’s pretty much what Microsoft is trying to get across to everybody.
In reality, that’s just them trying to push this $500 product on to people more easily as a better alternative to the Apple iPad and similar devices.
But is it better? Well, there are no specific Microsoft Surface Reviews just yet, as they aren’t released yet (and for that matter, will only be available ONLINE and through the MICROSOFT STORES when the date hits). But there are some previews available for this Windows 8 tablet device.
The good news? The Microsoft SURFACE Tablet is highly polished and beautiful looking. It sports a fantastic keyboard / cover that allows users to type uninhibited at full speed and gives them a mouse to use. The bad news? If you purchase this cover separately, then tack on an additional $120 to the already high price.
Still, high prices aren’t something to be upset about, considering similar Apple Products run at high cost as well. If you are a man or woman of gadgets, then you’ll definitely want this one still.
Here’s a commercial that shows the device, but not its use.
Enjoy the clicking noise of attaching the keyboard and moving the stand!
The screen is 10.6 inches with a 1366 x 768 resolution and it goes without saying that the screen is also multi-touch for your fingers. It would likely work well with a stylus or pen too. The pixel density of the screen is 148 pixels per inch (ppi). This is lower than the iPad’s retina display, which outdoes it at 2048 x 1536 and 264 PPI.
