Microsoft unveils new Surface tablets

Microsoft hasn’t exactly lit the tablet world on fire with its Surface tablets. That hasn’t discouraged the company, however. Today, Microsoft announced tweaks to its line of Surface hardware, unveiling the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. The new models (and new accessories) will launch in 22 markets (including the US and UK) on October 22. It’ll also hit China in November. Pre-orders start September 24 at Microsoft’s online store, its retail stores, and retailers like Best Buy. The Surface Pro 2 is dubbed “a true laptop replacement” and can run most Windows software in addition to apps from the Windows Store. It comes packed with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor “which, combined with other improvements, delivers increased performance and up to 60 percent longer battery life than Surface Pro.” Prices for the Surface Pro 2 start at $899. It can be purchased in 64GB and 128GB configurations with 4 GB of RAM and 256GB and 512GB configurations with 8 GB of RAM.
