Microsoft Launches $449 Surface 2, $899 Surface Pro 2 and Surface Accessories

Microsoft is not one to be left behind. That is why it has launched its Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 Tablets. These are evolved versions of the Surface RT and the Surface Pro respectively. The claims made by Microsoft are that the tablets are very fit and smart companions and that they are productive to boot. However, the tablets are pretty expensive and therefore they compete with the best products out there. Below is the gallery of both Surface tablets with new accessories.

The likes of Apple and Samsung come up when you mention the tablets. The Surface 2 is the same as its previous version when seen from an external viewpoint. Meanwhile, its internal makeup is radically different. A 1080p display screen and a Tegra 4 processor are among its prominent features. And a 10 hour battery life makes it worth the purchase. Windows 8.1 runs on this gadget. At a cool $499, the tablet is yours for the taking. 

As for the Surface Pro 2, it is a really powerful alternative. Intel’s Haswell processor is a part of this tablet. Both performance and battery life have been extended beyond the ordinary level. At a steep $899 it too may be worth the money. Furthermore, there are upgrades to its internal features that can be facilitated. 

Microsoft has its diversity, so it also came up with its Surface Music Kit along with the twin tablets. This is a unique model of the firm’s Touch Cover Keyboard meant for musical production. Along with the two tablets it will boost Microsoft’s reputation as a software giant that keeps its clientele satisfied. 

Microsoft also states that "customers can pre-order Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 starting at 8 a.m. EDT on Sept. 24, 2013, at MicrosoftStore.com, Microsoft Stores, and Best Buy in the U.S. and Canada, as well as select retailers in most Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 launch markets. Customers purchasing either device will also receive free Skype calling to landlines in more than 60 countries for one year, unlimited Skype WiFi on their Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 at more than 2 million hot spots worldwide for one year, and 200 GB of free SkyDrive storage for two years."
