Finally we caught hold on the much awaited and much speculated Microsoft’s tablet – Microsoft Surface 2. The first question that pops my mind after seeing it, is, would it be rather fair to term it as a tablet? This Microsoft device is the second generation of its ancestor Surface RT and looks no less than a laptop. It would be apt to say that, in its most basic formulation, the Surface 2 is quite similar to its predecessor. Release date of Microsoft Surface 2 to is expected to be in the month of October 2013
Microsoft Surface 2 Features and Specifications:-
Display and Design
Now coming down to what’s different in the new Surface2. It is an ARM-based tablet that is, it runs on Windows RT and has regular touch-screen keyboard which when attached to optional cover with a keyboard on the inside, works best! As is revealed, its build to make Windows 8.1 sing. With its new processor, NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip, the graphical performance and overall speed performance is incomparable to any of its competitors in the market. The smart kickstand with Surface engraved on its cover, makes using this device, easy and far simpler. The battery has improved by almost 25%. Not that we had complaints with its predecessor when it came to longevity, but longer the better, the battery boost to this Microsoft device has added an added star on its badge board.
