Microsoft Takes Apple iPad Head On With Surface for Windows

First off I am an Apple fanboy from way back! With that said the new Microsoft Surface looks pretty nice even though they have pretty much ripped the design straight from apple iPad… But competition is a good thing, Right?

It’s a sleek looking tablet, at least in the product shots and promotional video released. Though, it does look a bit on the thick side.

While the iPad’s tech specs are fairly stunning, we also know that the killer feature of Apple’s tablet is the app ecosystem. The only way to compete in a market so utterly owned by Apple will be to encourage and support developers in creating apps for the device, or Microsoft will have a tablet-shaped Zune experience all over again.
