Update: The “pro” version has a stylus (fail) that you have to charge (!)
Lots of things have been said about the new Microsoft Surface. Read coverage at The Verge for details. I’m watching the video of the press event, and more than anything, the utter silence at 10:39 into the video says it all. The “reveal” video/CG of the metal shards turning into the name had just completed. Steve Ballmer pulls out the actual tablet to show the attendees. Utter silence.
That said, it looks cool, but many will think “I already have an iPad, why this?”
