Microsoft Surface Tablet Codenamed “Metro” Launched

Posted By: Poketors - December 15, 2012
Microsoft has finally introduced its own series of tablets, thus taking a leap from being just a ‘software company’ to a ‘tablet manufacturer’ giving rise to a healthy competition between its arch rival , Apple which has been somewhat on the decline since the demise of its visionary, Steve Jobs. These tablets will be inculcated with never-seen-before additional features in the form of removable keyboards and fully supporting its latest release, the Windows 8 operating system.

These tablets also have a touch-friendly user interface codenamed “Metro”.

This new launch is currently named as the Microsoft Surface Tablet. And as of now there are only two versions of the tablet that will be available in the market.

1. Microsoft Surface &  2. Microsoft Surface Pro

Microsoft Surface Tablet is an Ultra-portable PC which works on Windows RT and Windows 8 operating system. It can be compared to a highly compact Tablet type computer having a high precision crafted VaporMg casing that protects it fm external damage and gives you a high quality finish and a royal feel.

Its surface is very thin with a 9.3mm thickness which supports a full sized USB port, Micro-SD and other accessories such as the ‘Touch cover’ or the ‘Type cover’. The Touch Cover comes in five vibrant colors and the Type Cover comes with a 3mm thin, pressure sensitive cover as a functioning keyboard and track pad. The cover connects with the Surface with a single magnetic click at the bottom.

There are two normal standard cameras, one at the front and the other at its standard rear position. The front camera can be used as a Live-cam to chat with people and other general purposes. It also contains HD Stereo speakers and dual microphones.
