Microsoft Surfaces with iPad Competitor

    bcooper

    If you haven’t yet heard of Microsoft’s new Surface product(s), you soon will.  It looks like they are going to be really nice!   With a keyboard that is the cover, the ability to run full Microsoft Office, handwriting, touchpad + touchscreen, USB 2.0 and 3.0 connectivity, and the ability to run Flash Videos (Come on Apple!), it appears Surface might be a real competitor.

    C-Forward employees are hoping to get our hands on one soon to test it out.  They are projecting that this will come out in the Fall to coincide with Windows 8 (which also looks very good).  The projected price tag is unknown, but it appears they intend to price it out the same as Apple’s iPad.

    No word yet how Dell, IBM, HP and the other PC manufacturers are going to take this hardware announcement from Microsoft, but they can’t be happy about it.
