Microsoft Unveils a Tablet to Challenge the iPad

Surface Tablet

In its biggest-ever push into the hardware business, Microsoft unveiled a tablet computer called Surface that is designed to challenge Apple’s iPad. At an event here, the company showed off the device, which is about the same weight and thickness as an iPad, with a 10.6-inch screen. The tablet has a built-in “kickstand” that will allow users to prop it up for watching movies, and a detachable cover that will serve double duty as a keyboard.

Senh: This will probably be the end of netbooks - iPad running windows 7. There's something about being able to hold onto something and moving things around with your fingers. The only drawback is typing, but I think it can be solved if Swype makes a version for tablet computers. With multi-touch being the wave of the future, I wonder if people will start developing calluses on their fingers. I'm already at that stage with my HTC HD2. I had to take a break from using Swype to type.
