I know that this is a mobile site but I felt compelled to include a quick write up on new tablet that Microsoft just announced called the Surface tablet.
What makes this so amazing? It seems to really hit that sweet spot that everyone seems to want between laptop and tablet. Above you can see it in "laptop mode" with it's kickstand out and keyboard attached. (There are two different types of keyboards. A 3mm thin pressure sensitive multi-touch and as a touch type cover which is more like the keyboard you are use to.)
They have gone so far as to blur the line between tablet and laptop that there will be a Surface that uses Intel-based processors, and with run Windows 8 Pro with 64GB with rumored 128GB models coming in late 2012.
