微软将推出自产平板电脑与苹果竞争



With a laptop as her main computing device, Brenda Estrella is ready to take the next step into the tablet world as open to what Microsoft has to offer.

“iPad for me is more as an entertainment device, like I see a lot of people carrying around or taking pictures on it. For me, it’s not that practical. So if Microsoft is coming up with that tab that actually has the same type so that I can actually do different things than just swipe, then that will be better for me.”

Microsoft CEO Steve Bomer on Monday unveiled the new Surface powered by the Windows 8 operating system.

One version of the device which will be outlined in the next few months has the similar weight and thickness to Apple’s iPad, but a slightly bigger screen of 27 centimeters.

A second heavier version is aimed at the new generation of light weight laptops or Ultra-Books.

Microsoft said the Surface’s price will be competitive with other tablets.

Unlike the iPad, Surface will have a kick stand to hold it upright and step snap on touch keyboard.

Microsoft says the device’s design to smoothly seamlessly transition between consumption and creation without compromise.

Technology analysts got their first look at the Surface Tablet on Monday.

"It’s a very interesting device. I think the key point here is it’s not just another iPad. It’s a device that almost certainly a replacement for PC. "

Still some here at this Washington coffee shop are skeptical as to whether Microsoft can compete in a market that iPad has dominated for two years.

“Would I buy one over an iPad? No. I just, I like Apple products right now. I’m glad there is a competitor. I’m glad there is an alternative. But I am sticking to Apple.”

“Too late, too slow and too bad for them.”

For years, Microsoft has been putting its software on computers made by others. Now with the Surface, the world’s largest software company is making its first firmware into hardware and hoping the move will pay off.
