Re: Microsoft Surface Tablet Release Date in India, Price and Specifications

Yes Microsoft has unveiled a line of Surface tablets, the release date and price of the same has not been announced yet. Sources say that they will be measuring 10.6-inches in size with Gorilla Glass 2 display. They have showed two of them where one will be running Windows RT with an ARM processor where as the other one will be running Windows 8 Pro with an Intel processor. The Windows RT is said to be the "Metro-only" version of Windows 8 and on the other hand Windows 8 Pro will be featuring desktop look of Windows having Start bar and home screen icons. Their back cover is foldable and one can fold it under the tablet, the front cover will be acting as a QWERTY keyboard as well. It will get attached to the tablet magnetically. The back cover will be available in different colors like black, blue and pink etc. They will be having rear webcams and dual microphones for playing videos, games and music. They will be having microSD card as well as USB port. The battery life has been mentioned as improved so we can hope for the best.
