Microsoft’s Major Mystery Monday Announcement Is A Tablet

Since Thursday everyone following Microsoft has been trying to solve a puzzle, nobody succeeded. Everyone tried guessing and that’s what it has been–just guesses. Nobody knew for sure what was coming and now we know. I summed up the craziness in a post and the roller-coaster we’ve had in the past 4 days.

Now we know.

In an announcement in LA, Microsoft has announced tablet!

This is probably the best kept secret and by far the most interesting news to come out in a few months. Steve Ballmer said

It was always clear that what our software could do would require us to push hardware, sometimes where our partners hadn’t envisioned.

“Much like Windows 1 needed the mouse, we wanted to give Windows 8 it’s own hardware.

We will keep updating this post as we get more details.

Details:

Microsoft calls this the Surface. Why?!

  • 10.6 inch display
  • 1.5 lbs
  • USB 2
  • 9.3mm”
  • Built-in stand
  • Cover is a multi-touch keyboard!
  • Runs Windows RT (most likely) and has another Windows 8 version
  • Supports stylus
