Microsoft inserted itself into the tablet hardware market in a major way this evening, unveiling its line of Surface tablet devices at an event in Los Angeles.
Wrapped in a magnesium case that Microsoft calls VaporMg (pronounced “Vapor mag”), the highlight feature of the Surface touch tablet might be a magnetically-attached, 3mm-thich Touch Cover that folds down and functions as a full touchscreen keyboard.
Another cover option, the 5-mm thick Type Cover, has a built-in trackpad. The keyboards power down when they’re folded back against the tablet thanks to a built-in accelerometer.
Would you get one considering it runs Windows 8? An OS that based on the history of every second Microsoft OS being terrible, could suck arse?
