Microsoft Surface

The Design Was Developed Entirely by Microsoft Itself

Scheduled for 19:30 (GMT), the event ‘mysterious’ Microsoft has suffered a slight delay. But it did not disappoint those who bet on a tablet: (Microsoft Surface: A Competitor for Apple iPad)

The new Microsoft Surface, Microsoft’s weapon to fight with the Apple iPad and iPhone was announced by Steve Ballmer, CEO of the company


“It’s a community of brand new computers from Microsoft,” Ballmer said. “It embodies the notion that hardware and software they push each other forward.”

Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows and Windows Live took the stage to explain the details of the new tablet. Presented as’ the stage of the new Windows “, the model is only 9.3 mm thick, with USB 2.0 ports, all made from magnesium. Has 10.6-inch screen and the device has access to all standard Windows applications store.

During the presentation, the tablet crashed. The solution was to get a new one and continue. Sinofsky did a demonstration and explained that the Netflix streaming application has been redesigned for Windows 8. “The Microsoft Surface of the Wi-Fi is the best that has appeared in a tablet,” he said.

The new Microsoft Surface comes with its own support – Kickstand – without the need for accessories and covers. It is equipped with Gorilla Glass, and comes with integrated hood – which is also a multitouch keyboard – with only 3 mm thick. The keyboard / cover also include a track pad. The Microsoft Surface will come in two versions, one with an Intel processor and Windows Pro 8, and another with ARM processor and Windows RT.

The CEO spoke about the connection between man and machine, which gets better with the right mix of hardware and software.
