This week’s episode of "On The Whiteboard" gives us an up-close look at yesterday’s Microsoft Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 launch event. Editor Pamela Woon has made her stop in New York City to speak with Brian Hall, General Manager of Marketing For Surface, and get the “inside scoop” on the company’s latest tablet devices.

The video is essentially a recap of what we already know concerning Microsoft’s Surface devices. In point, Hall points out the Surface Pro 2’s new improved battery life (by 75%), adjustable kickstand for easier use on your lap, and the new docking station accessory, which will allow anyone to turn their Surface in to “a powerful workstation”. I personally do not know if I would consider the Surface Pro 2 a workstation, but Microsoft has its sights on what they want people to see the device as – powerful.

Hall also explains the “complete revamp” of the next generation Surface 2, which features an improved camera, new kickstand, and full 1080p HD screen.

For more information, check out the above video for yourself and let us know what you think of Microsoft’s new tablet devices. And don't forget, you can preorder your new Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 today.
