Windows Surface Release Date Announced

/ Jul 30th, 2012 3 Comments

Microsoft Surface

Microsoft confirmed the obvious today when the company announced their Surface tablet will hit store shelves at the same time as Windows 8.

Just last week, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 8 OS will be launching on October 26. In a business report released today, Microsoft stated that the company’s first branded tablet will also be out at that time.

“The next version of our operating system, Widows 8, will be generally available on October 26, 2012. At that time, we will begin selling the Surface, a series of Microsoft-designed and manufactured hardware devices,” the report said.

The annual report was filed this week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

This is the first active attempt by Microsoft to challenge Apple’s iPad. Microsoft has traditionally stayed away from the hardware business and focused on the Windows operating system.

The sleek-looking Surface has 10.6 inch display and is 9.33 millimeters thick. The tablet uses Microsoft’s ClearType HD display technology.

The ARM-based Surface will run on Windows RT and pack a microSD card reader, USB 2.0 port, MicroHD out, and a choice of either 32 GB or 64 GB. There will also be a Surface PRO available, which will run on a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor. It will have a microSDXC reader, USB 3.0 port, Mini DisplayPort, pen input technology, and up to 128 GB of memo1ry. It will come packaged with the Windows 8 Pro operating system.

The company originally announced the device and showed it off at a Los Angeles press conference in June. It immediately sent shockwaves through the tech industry. The iPad-like device was showed off with an innovative keyboard that can also act as a cover, making it extremely portable.

Microsoft has yet to officially announce the release date. Pricing for the tablet has yet to be announced. Microsoft has previously stated that it would be priced in line with comparable slates. The Surface PRO will be priced in line with ultrabooks currently on the market.

    “The iPad-like device” !!?? Why comparing it with an iPad ?? the iPad has nothing to do with this device !!!
    The ipad is a big phone, this is a small computer !
    This is useful, the ipad is useless. Nothing to compare !
    If everything that looks like that is an “iPad-like device” then the iPad itself is a microsoft-like device, cause this kind of tablet where there a long time before ipad, and microsoft did one too !

      While I am a Windows and Android user, having avoided iProduct, you have to keep things in scope. The iPad series is by far the leading tablet line in the public eye. To this end having a similar setup of traditional desktop OS manufacturer creating both software and hardware being compared to the iPad should come as no surprise.

      Also, do I understand correctly that only the Pro version will support pen input features?

    I am waiting for it ….. superb device… Microsoft did great job!
