The Tablet that Will Compete with the Ipad

Device will come with embedded cloak and keypad. Price has not yet been announced

After a lot of mystery, Microsoft revealed the night of this Monday (18/06) What everyone expected, confirming rumors of the last few days. The company revealed in Los Angeles (USA) The Microsoft Surface, a tablet that runs the new Windows operating system 8 and reaches the market to try to fight Apple’s IPad leader. The great novelty is that, unlike its rivals, the device will already come with embedded cloak and keypad.

The brief conference began with the entry of the company’s CEO to the stage, Steve Ballmer. The CEO has told a bit of the company’s history and how large investments have been in various products over the years, passing by the mouse, keyboard and camcorders to reach the latest, such as Kinect and Xbox 360.

Then it was time to announce the Surface. “Just like Windows 1 needed a mouse, we wanted Windows 8 to have its own device, and we had our vision about what could be a tablet,” Ballmer explained.

The device comes equipped with office package applications and will have two templates: the Microsoft Surface, with Windows RT (tablet version), 10.6 inch HD ClearType screen, 32 GB and 64 GB memory, MicroSD and USB 2.0 inputs, ARM processor, weighing only 676 grams and with 9.3 mm thick. The second model-called Microsoft Surface Pro-will come with a 10.6 inch Full HD Clear Type screen, inputs MicroSDXC and USB 3.0, storage capacity of 64 GB and 120 GB, processor with the third generation of Intel Core chips, Windows platform Pro 8 wheel, owns 13.3 mm thick and weighs 903 g. This model does not come with the Office programs.

After Ballmer, it was the turn of the executive Steven Sinofsky to tell you more about the product. “The Surface is a tablet that works and plays the way you want it,” said Sinofsky. He was the one who presented the Touch cover, the cover of the tablet that, in addition to being attached to the appliance, has an integrated multitouch keyboard. It has only 3 mm and uses a pressure-sensitive technology that captures typing gestures, and will be available in various colours. Another addendum is the Kickstand, a support that leaves the tablet standing effortlessly.

Additionally, Microsoft has confirmed that the Surface will have a number of accessories. Among them a stylus pen-with two sensors, one for the touch and the other for the digital ink-that sees the proximity of the object on the screen and stops receiving the user’s fingers commands. There will also be support for the company’s application store, to buy music, movies and more-even there was a demosntração of a version of Netflix made exclusively for Surface. In the words of Sinofsky, “It’s the best Wi-Fi in the market”.

The simplest version of Microsoft Surface will be launched along with Windows 8, which should happen between September and October this year. The most complete model, the Pro, arrives three months later. Watch the video presentation of the device: Photionary.com.
