Following Microsoft’s unveiling of Surface, a Windows tablet, CNN reports the following 5 ways Microsoft’s Surface may be better than an iPad.
Apparently “Lots of people get frustrated with the iPad because typing on it is a major chore. They want to use it like a full-fledged desktop, but they’re stymied by the input method. … If the Surface ships with the keyboard — and if Microsoft markets the device as a tablet that will let you get some work done — it could be a big hit.”
With a display screen of 10.6 inches that is almost a full inch bigger than the iPad’s and said to be optimized to have essentially the same dimensions as a movie screen, we can bid, farewell to black bars when watching video.
The Windows Pro model will run on an i5 Intel processor and come with up to 128 gigabytes of internal memory (the iPad currently goes up to 64). This is more power to your tablet.
4. USB ports
Both versions of the Surface come with two USB ports (2.0 on the RT and a faster 3.0 on the Windows Pro). Apparently, the lack of ports has been one of the few persistent complaints about the iPad.
5. Xbox SmartGlass
The Xbox SmartGlass feature, which Microsoft rolled out at this month’s E3 video gaming expo, will work with the iPad and Android tablets.
