In its most strategically significant push yet into the hardware business, Microsoft unveiled a tablet computer called Surface that is intended to challenge Apple’s iPad.
The company showed off a tablet that is about the same weight and thickness as an iPad, with a 10.6-inch screen. The device has a built-in “kickstand” that allows it to be propped up for watching movies, and a thin detachable cover that will serve double duty as a keyboard. The Surface tablet runs a variation of Windows 8, a version of Microsoft’s flagship operating system that is due out in the fall.MOBILE, News
