As with any new tablet in 2012 it must contend with the reigning champion, the 3rd Generation iPad. Surface by Microsoft looks like a decent contender. What must be judged is the implementation of Windows 8 with this new sleek hardware. Using a Surface looks like it may just live up to the announcement conference that Microsoft has just finished. As for memory the Surface for Windows RT will include 32GB and 64GB models which will be priced comparable to ARM based tablets. Then another PRO version will have 64GB and 128GB models and will be priced in the Ultrabook PC class.
I think the big surprise is the touch cover keyboard that very much one-ups Apple’s Smart Cover.
