Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

It is an interresting combination between previously existing ideas.

It isn't tactile as a normal keyboard, it doesn't have feedback, but it might be good enough.

I wonder if it would be useful for a phone too, it would have to be a non-floppy kind; A sturdy cover.

But why does the touchcover have a touchpad ?

The touchpad was and still is a hack, a workaround.

The screen isn't a touchscreen or what ?
