Microsoft Surface RT - Features of new ARM Windows tablet

A broad screen, and that keyboard is like something you've never seen


Microsoft's iPad killer called Surface RT tries to cover all the bases that Apple has with its wildly popular tablet and then added a few. It's got a keyboard; it's got Office applications; it's thinner; it's got a bigger screen. It's also got something the iPad will never have: the Windows 8 or Windows RT operating system, which may be an asset or a liability – the jury's still out on that one. These slides offer some photos of the devices and go through some of these differentiators. The devices will be available October 26. There's also a few slides on Surface 8 Pro, the more traditional laptop version.
