Microsoft Surface 2: We Go Hands On

Microsoft today announced a brand new version of the Surface RT. Except, this time, it's not called the Surface RT. It's just called the Surface 2. We were on the scene at Microsoft's New York City event this morning, and we've got hands on for you! Check out our first impressions below:

Microsoft Surface 2 Hands-on

The device still runs Windows RT (version 8.1), it just doesn't have the name, and it boasts a 10.6-inch ClearType Full HD display and comes with support for microSD, USB 3.0, and HD video out. The tablet comes in two variations, 32 GB or 64 GB, and ships with Office 2013 RT and 200 GB of SkyDrive storage (for two years). It's priced at $449, the same money customers were asked for when the original Surface RT launched. Of course the Touch Cover or Type Cover will cost more.
