This will all depend on what kind of internal specs it has. I hope it's a Haswell CPU, but most likely it will be an Atom CPU.

Interesting, i like the screen resolution on the device. If i were to purchase a tablet, i'd rather go for a slightly bigger device. They need to make the Windows RT platform more appealing, might happen with the release of the next Xbox. (rumours of it running windows 8, metro but no desktop).

With that res it will have to come with two accessories, a pocket microscope to read text and a backup battery pack.

A 7.5" Windows tablet is way too small for running Windows 8. Sure it might be fine for some Metro apps, but there are so few of them and most are such poor quality. I struggle to run desktop apps on an 11" so can't see how such a small screen would ever work.

I always felt $399 should've been the price for the Surface. I played around with the device and it's better than I expected but price I think is the biggest reason for the minor success it achieved. I know I would've bought one at $399 but $599 is a bit too much.

Microsoft is crazy and a year late. Too bad the Nook HD just got the Google Play store. That makes it better if you ask me.
Microsoft needs to drop Windows 8 x86, Windows 8 RT, Windows Phone, and just make software that they're good at like Office for Android and iOS.

Microsoft has a one year lag once again in terms of hardware. I bet it won't even have specs as good as the next-gen Nexus 7 announced at I/O soon. And it will be released only 2-3 months before the Nexus 7 3rd gen will be out, which of course will make it very obsolete.
