Microsoft announced its Surface tablet four months ago, and has now announced a price and date for the RT version of the device, in addition to starting pre-orders.
The RT version of the tablet is the “light” version of Windows 8. Set for release on October 26, a Windows 8 Pro version will follow three months later. This Pro version will include the “full”Windows 8 package running on Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, featuring a more robust battery and greater peripheral support within a thicker body. Ports will include USB 3.0, DisplayPort and SDXC expansion slot. It will also have twice the storage capacity of the RT Version.
