Appeal of Surface 2 [New Straits Time (Malaysia)]
(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) JACK Cowett, Surface product marketing manager for Microsoft is demonstrating the Surface 2 Windows tablet. At under 9mm, the new machine is thinner than Surface RT, and four times faster in terms of performance with the integration of NVIDIA's Tegra 4 chip and 72- core GPU. The ClearType HD display makes it suitable for use indoors and outdoors. In terms of ports, Surface 2 offers USB3.0, microSD slot and HD video output.
"We've improved the tablet with a 3.5MP camera facing forward and a 5MP at the back. Now you can take better photos and shoot full HD videos, and have the best Skype experience too," says Cowett.
Preloaded with Windows RT 8.1 operating system, Surface 2 takes only two hours to reach full charge, and the battery can last up to 10 hours. For users looking for productivity tools, the tablet is preloaded with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 RT and Outlook 2013 RT.
Microsoft will be bringing in the spill-resistant Touch Cover 2 keyboard in black finishing as well as backlit-enabled Type Cover 2 keyboard in four colour variations: Black, purple, cyan and magenta. Another accessory to be released together with Surface 2 is the Arc Mouse Surface Edition.
