What do we see on the Surface?
Couple of days ago, Microsoft launched it’s answer to the iPad – Microsoft Surface.
Tech specs seem fine, the tablets seems well designed. With an inbuilt stand and a smart cover /magnetic keyboard, this product seems intriguing at the surface.
Now the iPad is a great product and predominantly used for reading books, gaming, browsing the web, etc. When it comes to word processing jobs, typing on glass isn’t that pleasant. Even though, there are so many ipad covers and cases available that come with keyboards, I see a gap. A gap, that netbooks couldn’t really fill with their bad processors and bad performance, Microsoft Surface might just be useful here.
The smart cover plus magnetic keyboard that comes with the Microsoft Surface is probably the best element of the launch. There is skepticism over the Windows 8 OS, but it has never stopped Microsoft from selling their operating system in the past.
We just have to wait until the product hits the market.
