Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
On June 18, 2012, amid rumors that Microsoft would be producing a Barnes and Noble tablet, fans of the Windows operating system discovered that Microsoft had something much bigger up their sleeve. The Microsoft Surface tablet is the computer giant's first major step onto the tablet market. Online marketing firm, fishbat, analyzes details surrounding the new product and what it means for the market.
The Microsoft Surface is specifically designed to be able to work as both a tablet and a PC. This is the first time anything of this nature is hitting the market. The Surface comes equipped with two USB ports, something most other tablets lack. Even with the USB ports the Surface is extremely thin. The 9.3mm version will be able to run Windows RT and the 13.5mm version will run Windows 8.
The cover for the tablet opens up and functions as a keyboard for the tablet and even includes a fully functional trackpad. Due to many times first-time tablet users are turned off by the lack of a tangible keyboard, it appears Microsoft has alleviated that concern.
Sida Li, the Social Media Director at fishbat, said “Microsoft is stepping up after seeing what other tablets had to offer. Then they went and did everything slightly better, while also including keyboard and trackpad functionality. It was a brilliant move.”
Pricing for the two versions of the Surface has yet to b announced, but Microsoft claims it will be “competitive” with other similar tablets already on the marketplace. Microsoft’s tablet is making major waves in the media while many technology enthusiasts wait to see if they can take the tablet “crown” and dethrone the iPad.
