Microsoft's initial player in the the tablet game appears promising, even if key questions about the product remain unanswered. Unveiled at a June 18th news conference in Los Angeles, the duo of new Windows 8-based "Surface" tablets target consumers as well as enterprise and power users. Chalk drawings of the mystery tablets greeted the crowd outside the Microsoft event.
"The Surface is a PC. The Surface is a tablet. And the Surface is something new that we think people will absolutely love," said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at the event.
Unfortunately, we won't know for several months if Ballmer is right. The first model, Surface for Windows RT, won't ship until Windows 8 arrives this fall. And the enterprise-friendly Surface for Windows 8 Professional will become available about three months later.
