    MS is forcing us to not miss when connecting the cover
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:51:15 PM
    I accept that challenge
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/18/2012 11:51:25 PM

    Touch cover has an accelerometer built in, so it knows when its folded back and it will deactivate the keyboard.
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:52:21 PM
    Apparently, we'll all fall in love with touch cover

    Panos is showing how you can rest your hand on the keyboard without activating the keys
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/18/2012 11:54:34 PM
    But still wind up typing as you apply pressure to the keys

    hmmm, MS really talking up the keyboard. going the best keyboard evar route with the hype
  • Brian Daniel 6/18/2012 11:54:59 PM
    It would be nice to have a tablet like this to replace a laptop. Looking forward to see more to see if it really can replace my laptop.

  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:55:30 PM
    OK, this won't be cheap
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/18/2012 11:55:33 PM
    Surface for Windows 8 Pro is comparable to Ultrabook PCs
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/18/2012 11:55:39 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/18/2012 11:55:52 PM
    Surface for Windows RT will cost similar to other ARM-tablets.
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:56:01 PM
    Don't expect it before WIndows 8 (obviously)
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/18/2012 11:56:08 PM

    Ballmer is back
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/18/2012 11:56:12 PM
    If you've got an iPad and must use a 3rd party keyboard, this might be a very attractive alternative.
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:56:29 PM
    Looks like it's winding down
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/18/2012 11:56:44 PM
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:56:50 PM
    Why now? is being asked
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:57:21 PM
    I don't think he means "Why now" as in why this week though
  • seth.rosenblatt 6/18/2012 11:57:22 PM
    MS better have some killer apps to go with Windows 8. I'm no hardware expert, but this looks unique.
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:57:45 PM
    OK, gonna get some hands on time looks like
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/18/2012 11:57:48 PM

    Oh, it's a Surface commercial
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:58:29 PM
    I think my ears are bleeding...
  • Eric Franklin 6/18/2012 11:58:36 PM
    This is LOUD!
