You read that right folks, today Microsoft unveiled their first tablet, the aptly named Microsoft Surface.
There are currently two announced versions, the Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro models. Windows RT is the clear lightweight option given the specs reported by IGN:
9.33 mm thick
10.6″ ClearType HD DIsplay
31.5 Wh battery
microSD, USB 2.0, Micro HD Video
Office Home & Student 2013 RT, Touch Cover, Type Cover
32 GB, 64 GB
The Windows 8 Pro on the other hand is the heftier option, here are the specs reported by IGN:
13.5 mm thick
10.6″ ClearType Full HD Display
42 Wh battery
microSDXC, USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort Video,
Touch Cover, Type Cover, Pen with Palm Block
64 GB, 128 GB
Despite no announcement today confirming or denying any potential Xbox integration, I think it’s a safe assumption that there will be. Especially considering recent news (which you can find here) regarding the future of the Xbox platform.
