Showing off tablet, keyboard cover
Today Microsoft pulled back the veil on its much-rumored tablets. Dubbed "Surface," the Microsoft-branded tablets run either Windows 8 Pro or Windows RT and feature a novel cover that doubles as a keyboard. The company has followed up with images showing off both the tablet and its productivity-oriented keyboard cover.
Both tablets share a 10.6-inch display, though the ARM-based Windows RT model brings a thinner chassis that measures just 9.3mm thick. The Intel-based variant, in contrast, steps up to a 13.5mm-thick housing despite a smaller battery.
Microsoft has yet to announce pricing details or ship dates for either tablet.
