Surface

Last time, Windows Phone. Now, Surface.  I really think Microsoft is right on track here though there were no specifics were given away during the launch that got tech press yapping away their disappointments.  For some specs though here's a rundown.



Measuring just 9.3mm thick, the Surface for Windows RT is built around an angled, all-magnesium VaporMg case that weighs just under 1.3 pounds, with an NVIDIA-made ARM chip powering the whole affair. Microsoft's hardware partner has also gone all-out on extra touches, such as a built-in stand, twin 2x2 MIMO antennas for WiFi, and a 10.6-inch optically-bonded, Gorilla Glass 2-covered HD display. 


Microsoft also announced there will be a Windows 8 Pro version of the Surface.  For more reviews of the event click here for Engadget, here for Mashable, here for The Next Web and here for The Verge.



Though it is dubbed as an "iPad Killer" I think it is also a direct competition to the Macbook Air.  Hitting two birds apples in one stone I guess.  I think the ability to switch from a tablet to a laptop is surreal.  



I have been hitting that replay button for the nth time now and it seems to be no letting up.  I hope Microsoft won't screw this one up, I also do hope Windows Phone 8 (Apollo) will be legendary and take advantage of the disappointments of iOS 6.



Looks like I'm finally getting back to Microsoft Tribe.  So where can I get those new Windows logo stickers?  Again, please Microsoft don't screw this one up.
