Microsoft unveils Windows 8, and “Surface” Tablet

Microsoft has just launched its new Windows 8 operating system and its “Surface” tablet. This important move is seen as a bid to revive interest in its flagship product, and regain ground lost to Apple and Google in mobile computing.

Windows 8 is a decidedly different OS made to run on both personal computers and tablets. The fresh design dispenses with the start button and features square tiles for apps. The new Start screen is presented as “live” colorful, touchable tiles or widgets. For example, the People tile scrolls with Facebook feeds or pictures of your social-networking contacts. The Mail tile shows the header and top line or two from incoming messages.

Microsoft’s Windows 8 is definitely a promising platform, but it may take time before it’s well-suited for consumers.

The company’s new 10.6-inch Surface tablet is set to challenge Apple’s popular iPad head on. Surface is a pleasure to look at and hold, housed in a dark titanium color. A kickstand on the back props it up when you’re watching a movie or using the touch keyboard. Surface has two built-in microphones, two 720p HD cameras, a single USB 2.0 port, plus a microSDXC memory card expansion slot that is conveniently hidden under the kickstand. All models have Wi-Fi, but there’s no 3G or 4G cellular offering.

The cheapest model is a 32 gigabyte version starting at $499. The 32 Gb v ersion including an ultra thin cover that doubles as a keyboard will cost $599, and for $699, you will get a 64 GB version with touch cover.
