Microsoft launches Surface, their own Tablet.

A little over an hour ago, in one of the most secretive press conferences ever, Microsoft launched Surface. According to early reports from Engadget, the specifications for the new Tablet are as follows, “Measuring just 9.3mm thick, the Surface for Windows RT is built around an angled, all-magnesium VaporMg case that weighs just under 1.3 pounds, with an NVIDIA-made ARM chip powering the whole affair. Microsoft’s hardware partner has also gone all-out on extra touches, such as a built-in stand, twin 2×2 MIMO antennas for WiFi, and a 10.6-inch optically-bonded, Gorilla Glass 2-covered HD display.” [Update: The full specifications are now available here]

Another impressive feature is that Microsoft is offering the Tab with two types of Keyboards. A Type Cover full tactile keyboard, and a simple Touch Cover keyboard. According to the Verge, “It may seem like a minor difference, but the Touch cover keyboard is an improvement over the standard capacitive touch keyboard, while the Type Cover is a slimmed down version of a true keyboard with actual moving keys.

Do you think this will be able to make enough sales to impact the market share that Apple currently holds with their iPad?
