It has USB 2, 10.6 inch display at 16:9. We are assuming it is 1080p (which is nothing in comparison to the iPad 3′s retina). It also has Gorilla Glass 2, and the latest Intel CPU (Ivy Bridge). And Intel Core i5.
It’s too bad that they couldn’t go with USB 3, and retina.
Microsoft was boosting it’s Wi-Fi stating that it had the best Wi-Fi of any tablet.
Microsoft also boosted its kickstand on the back, which will be great for “sitting back and watching movies”.
One of the really interesting things about the Microsoft Surface is the cover, which has a built-in backlit keyboard. Which they claim is twice as efficient as typing on glass.
Besides the kickstand, on the back of the Surface is a Camera.
The tablet is less than 2 lbs and less than 14mm. It is also using a stylus (which they are calling a pen), with Digital Ink.
The tablet also has the new Windows Reader for (surprise!) reading.
They also spoke about a Netflix app, and how it is has the new Microsoft Office ’15.
“This spine feels like a book. You’ll hold it like a book. It will feel like it’s another book when you carry it with books.”
