Microsoft just announced it’s own brand tablet Surface. It comes in two flavours:

The first being Windows RT is lighter at 676g and 9.3mm thin. It has a 10.6″ ClearType HD display. powr is at 31.5 W-h. It has microSD, USB 2.0, MicroHD Video, 2×2 MIMO antenna. Softwares include Office Home & Student 2013 RT. It comes with A Touch Cover, type Cover. It is equipped with a vapormg case and stand. It is configurable at 32GB or 64GB.

The second is powered by Windows 8 Pro. It weighs 903g and 13.5mm thin. It also has a 10.6″ ClearType Full HD Display and crated 42 Wh. It has a microSDXC, USB 3.0, mini display port and 2×2 MIMO antenna. It has a touch cover, type cover, pen with palm block. Likewise it has a VaporMg Case and Stand. It comes in 64GB and 128GB variations.

So how much do you think this two devices will cost ? About the same price as the new iPad ? My guess should be SGD 650 or so for the Win RT and a SGD 1000 odd for the Windows 8 Pro version. If you notice, there is no mention of 3G or LTE support. It is just a 802.11n WIFI device. So, who manufactured the device for microsoft? I suppose it should be some China OEM company.
