Microsoft Surface

Microsoft just announced Surface (instantly renamed by myself to All-I-Want-For-Christmas!), their brand new tablet PCs for Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro.

Surface comes with a built-in kickstand and a Touch Cover that is also a fully functional keyboard, making it easy to switch between tasks optimized for touch and type. A Type Cover is also available for a more traditional typing experience. It has two cameras, stereo speakers and dual microphones tuned for Skype, as well as a USB port and MicroSD card slot.

(Taking my professional hat off and my geeky girly hat on, I would like to end this post with my initial reaction to seeing Surface for the first time: “OMG IT LOOKS SLEEK AND SEXY AND IT HAS COLORS AND THE PINK COVER WILL MATCH MY WINDOWS PHONE PERFECTLY AND I TOTALLY WANT ONE LIKE YESTERDAY!”)
