Speculations have been going on with Microsoft showcasing Windows 8 Tablet claiming to have a partnership with Barnes & Noble for their e-reader BUT it will be entertainment driven. When we say entertainment driven on a tablet, are gamers expecting this to be with an XBOX quality?

Windows 8 Tablet, Promising e-reader and entertainment?


Hi, Carolfhughes!

The sensational Microsoft’s Surface Tablet is indeed a hot topic for tablet fans around the world. It is rumored that this Microsoft’s Surface Tablet is a rival of Apple’s iPad. The gadget will be run by Windows 8 and Windows RT Operating System. However, experts said that it pose little threat to Apple’s iPad market dominance.

There are around five (5) differences between the two:

First, the Surface Tablet has a keyboard. Microsoft said that it is better as you can type document faster rather than tapping the iPad’s touch screen.

Second, the Surface Tablet has wider screen compared to iPad (10.6 inches wide).

Third, there is a big difference between their power (Windows Pro model has i5 Intel processor and has 128GB internal memory while iPad only has 64GB).

Fourth, the Surface Tablet has two USB ports while iPad don’t have any.

Lastly, it has Xbox SmartGlass feature. This SmartGlass feature is for gamers or for those who enjoy watching movies. It will let you plug in the device into a Television for better view while having a little touch of a Tablet.
