    Microsoft Surface Tablet vs iPad

    Since most of you here might be aware of Microsoft Surface Tablet, I am just starting this thread to know which one is the best amongst iPad 3, Surface (Windows RT) and Surface (Windows Pro). I think that the Microsoft Surface Tablet will be tough competitors but I am not sure about the same until their price is announced. What do you guys think about the same?

    Even I am waiting for their price to be revealed, I have heard that they will be available between 25k to 30 k and if it is really so then I think these Microsoft Surface Tablets will definitely get great response from the mass.

    Most of the features are appearing identical except the os and size of the tablets. The best thing that I have liked about the Microsoft Surface Tablets is that they are having usb ports. I think that Surface Tablets will be good competitors but I doubt that it will be able to impress Apple users. The new tablet users will surely get impressed by it but the price of the product will matter here. I wonít say that they will be overcoming apple as information on CPU speed and connected RAM are yet to be revealed. So I am having my fingers crossed for now and really hoping for Microsoft Surface Tablet to win over apple.

    Yes there will be a good competition, I donít think that it is just about Microsoft Surface Tablets vs apple but there are some other good upcoming tablets like Asus Nexus 7. It is said to come up with quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and Android 4.0 Jelly Bean. Even though the specification of this tablet is mentioned as rumored, I think if they really come up with the same at a decent price then will surely be a tough competitor for apple and Microsoft Surface Tablet both. I am really waiting to know about Microsoft Surface Tablets release date and price and I hope the specs that have been mentioned are true as well.
