Maybe I’m just cranky because I had to work a 12-hour day, waiting for an event to finish on West Coast time when I really just wanted to take my wife out to dinner instead. But Microsoft’s new Surface tablet still has catastrophe written all over it.
Let’s forget the ridiculous build-up to the event that was completely unnecessary and get right to the meat of things, shall we?
The Surface tablets in and of themselves look like nice devices. Beautiful construction, decent specs. But absolutely nothing was said about price or availability. Only that the Windows RT/ARM version will ship around Windows 8 RTM timeframe, and the Pro/Intel version will ship 3 months after that.
