Cool features of Microsoft Surface tablets

A broad screen and an innovative keyboard are among the highlights of these mobile devices
  • 1 of 11

Microsoft's iPad killer, called Surface RT, tries to cover all the bases that Apple has with its wildly popular tablet and then added a few. It's got a keyboard, it's got Office applications, it's thinner, and it's got a bigger screen. It's also got something the iPad will never have: The Windows 8 or Windows RT operating system, which may be an asset or a liability -- the jury's still out on that one. These slides offer some photos of the devices and go through some of these differentiators. The devices themselves are available Oct. 26. There are also some slides on Surface 8 Pro, the more traditional laptop version.
