Microsoft New ‘Surface’ Tablet Hits the Surface: Features, Availability, Pricing, Photos and Video
Microsoft was expected to reveal its own Windows 8 tablet to compete Apple in tech race. Today, Microsoft finally introduced its own tablet through an event held in Hollywood; Microsoft unveiled Surface- a 10.6 inch tablet equipped with a number of unique and attractive features, though still lagging behind Apple’s iPad. The new tablet also features Windows 8 RT which is called the best operating system specifically designed for tablets only. The company officials have actually shown two different models of Surface tablet and accessories which reflect some unique aspects and advances in industrial design and are able to grab the attention of tablet lovers.
According to Microsoft, their Surface has a unique design which is an excellent example of seamless transition between consumption and creation, without compromising quality and innovation. The Surface is equipped with highly appreciated Windows 8 software and its hardware is the most fabulous and remarkable, fully able to deliver utmost satisfaction and pleasure.
Microsoft Surface Tablet - An Excellent Example of ADVANCES IN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN:
Microsoft exclusively claims that Surface tablet is the outcome of the collective efforts of their employees based on company’s 30 years history of manufacturing hardware. The tablet is entirely conceived, designed and engineered Microsoft engineers and other officials; Surface offers a unique revelation for the flawless expression of entertainment and creativity. Microsoft has invested millions of pretty bucks to explore the most creative industrial design for the Surface tablet with a wonderful user interface for a high quality experience.
Here’re some major features of the Surface Tablet introduced by Microsoft;
1- Surface’s Software is Matchless: Surface comes with a full-sized USB port and a16:9 aspect ratio to meet the industry standard for HD. The edges of the tablet are positioned at 22 degrees, most feasible position for the PC at rest or in active use, which permits tablet hardware to fade out and allows software to be prominent.
2- Distinguished VaporMg:
Surface’s casing has been made by applying a unique technique called VaporMg (pronounced as Vapor-Mag), which is actually based on material selection and process to mold metal and set down particles for creating smooth finish just like a precious luxury watch.
3- Matchless Integrated Kickstand:
The exceptional VaporMg finish also provides a built-in kickstand that allows users changeover Surface from active use to inert consumption providing matchless experience during watching a movie or even using the HD front- or rear-facing video cameras. The kickstand appears when needed, and vanishes when not in use, without putting any additional weight or thickness.
4- New Experience of Touch Cover : A Breakthrough in Human Computer Interface:
Surface’s 3 mm Touch Cover offers a breakthrough in human-computer interface. It utilizes exclusive pressure-sensitive technology. Touch Cover is able to sense keystrokes as gestures, which makes you quite able to touch type drastically faster than with an on-screen keyboard. Moreover, you can select your own color of Touch Cover from multiple lively colors.
“Touch Cover clicks into Surface via a built-in magnetic connector, forming a natural spine like you find on a book, and works as a protective cover. You can also click in a 5 mm-thin Type Cover that adds moving keys for a more traditional typing feel”.
5- Surface Comes in Two Unique Windows Models:
Microsoft offers Surface tablet in two unique models to experience Windows with a little bit distinguished style. The one Surface model is equipped with an ARM processor featuring Windows RT, while the other features a third-generation Intel Core processor with Windows 8 Pro.
The Surface has a fastest and seamless interface which has been boosted with the premium experience of advanced Windows for the ease of connectivity, getting information and using apps.
Notably, Surface for Windows RT will come with the general availability of Windows 8, and the Windows 8 Pro model will hit the shelves about 90 days later. Both models will be sold in the Microsoft Store locations in the U.S. , with an option of buying them through online Microsoft Stores.
6- Surface Contributes to an Expanded Ecosystem:
As you know that Microsoft’s Windows is updated time to time which presents an extensively expanded ecosystem of software that eventually delivers selection and choice to customers for making their Windows experience more cool and pleasant.
The same rule applies on the new Surface; the tablet will obviously contribute to an already well-built and growing ecosystem of practical and modish devices introduced by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to convey the experience of Windows to consumers and businesses worldwide.
