Jane Unboxes the Microsoft Surface RT Tablet, Accessories

By , Jane McEntegart - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 51 comments

Halloween is almost upon us, so we're doing a spooky-themed unboxing of Microsoft's game-changing tablet hardware for Windows 8.

We got our hands on Microsoft's Surface RT tablet along with a bunch of accessories. We'll be putting it through our usual review process, but first we figured that you may want to get a first glimpse at how things look out of the box.

Check out the video below for Jane's unboxing of the 64 GB Windows 8 Surface RT tablet, along with some very colorful covers.

    Gotta say the tablet just LOOKS nice and the touch/type cover was a great idea to implement. Can't wait for the review.

    Looks good of a device.
    The whole unboxing video could use some polish. I've seen well done videos on Android Central, xda-Developers and other sites. Could use some inspiration from there. Esp. the audio quality (non-existent).

    Thanks for the video, this is the first that I get to see of this Surface thing. Might get one.

    I'm dying for the Pro version. The one thing I hated about my iPad was that I couldn't even take notes on it - the Surface gives me that, and has even made it better with the proximity-aware stylus.

    Whats up with all the youtube like comments, some sound like a lot of 9th grade AV club guys that never seen a female talk to them before...ignoring the device, context of the video, or the subject matter..and just going "ohhh a female...'drool'.

    Have a drink, chill out. I've yammered on about the Surface quite a bit, Jane in a witch costume is one hell of a nice change of pace. Besides, she's a good sport, from what I've seen. She's probably used to us by now haha...

    Anyway, I liked being able to see the kickstand and keypad in action by a regular person, and I didn't know they had an first-party VGA adapter available. Thanks Jane.
