Microsoft Surface: coming soon, any time now?

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 19-Jun-2012 12:14

Microsoft has announced its own tablet, running on Windows 8 supported by both ARM and Intel Core processors. The specs are not bad either, with 16:9 aspect ratio, 32GB to 129GB memory, USB support.

It looks good, the built-in keyboard and kick-stand together will make it a worthy contender no doubt and certainly a good replacement for many laptops.

Except when you read the press release and it says "coming soon" and "[Surface] will be sold in the Microsoft Store locations in the U.S. and available through select online Microsoft Stores."

Microsoft wasted the opportunity to get the world by surprise, with something like "available in the US end of June, in another 20 countries by August and the rest of the world by September".

Apple still knows how to do it.
