With its new device featuring a built-in keyboard, USB port, and considerable storage capabilities, Microsoft defies the iPad with a direct competitor.
To conquer the tablet market, Microsoft has launched 2 models of its tablet, (which bears the same name as its prototype touch tablet), each with different options: a Pro version, running Windows 8 Pro, and a simpler version running Windows RT.
For the moment, no prices or release date have been announced (although the RT version is expected to be available in the autumn and the Windows 8 one at the end of 2012): only the technical specs have been disclosed, leading to inevitable comparisons with the iPad.
