Microsoft ‘Surface’ to Compete Against iPad and Android

Posted on: June 19th, 2012 by Tetrabyte No Comments


Microsoft has announced that they have been developing a new range of tablets dubbed ‘surface’.

They will run Windows 8 using the new and controversial Metro interface.

The main bonus with these tablets is that they will be compatible with software such as the Microsoft Office suite, although it is currently not known if this will be bundled along with the new tablets or whether they will have to be paid for separately.

The tablet range will also be compatible with existing Windows software, but some of the applications may need to be adjusted for use with Windows 8 – so don’t expect immediate compatibility!
