Will the Microsoft Surface beat the iPad?
Hi, Evoldahc! 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 touchscreen. 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.
The manufacturer did not say anything about how much will it cost specifically but they said the price will be competitive. This means that it will have similar or quite close price to those other competitors. This will be released on fall, so it is quite near if you count the seasons.
