So here is the quote from the video itself:
A tablet that’s a unique expression of entertainment and creativity.
A tablet that works and plays the way you want.
A new type of computing. Surface.
I love how Microsoft is getting into the hardware game with Surface. They are taking their own unique approach to tablets but I do question the completely different platforms for the Surface RT version and the Pro. My problem with going with an Apple style announcement is that Surface was only half-baked. It still needs some time before it is good and done.
The keyboard covers are non-functional, the specs of both are unknown except that the consumer version will run on ARM and the Pro version on Intel. They revealed no pricing information, tech journalists could only experience specific demos but the video was rad. My only criticism is I wish they had done this closer to launch when all the details were set in stone.
The way they did it now means that a lot of the surprise will be over when they do get into the details of then when will it come out and how much will it cost. They have the surprise part down, now just make sure the stars line up.
The Microsoft Surface has a built-in kick stand, has a cover that is a keyboard, the case is made out of something called VaporMg. It is created by moulding metal and depositing particles that create a finish closer to a luxury watch, made of magnesium, it can be as thin as .65 mm which is thinner than a credit card. From all the hands on reports the case gave no flex which is great. Combine that with Gorilla Glass 2 protecting the screen and you come out with a tough soldier of a tablet.
