Microsoft has unleashed its Windows 8 hardware on Twitter by opening up the @Surface account. Surface Windows 8 tablets from the software giant will be its first major leap into hardware for its Windows operating system, excluding mice, keyboards and other peripherals, of course.
So far the account has published two tweets, one linking followers to a playlist of Surface videos, which contains only one thus far - it's the original video we all witnessed earlier in the year showing off what appeared to be a unique Windows 8 tablet of some sort - while the other promotes the music used in the Surface video.
Should you have only just emerged from your rock, Microsoft plans to launch two Surface Windows tablets. One running Windows RT and the other sporting Windows 8 Pro. Microsoft is set to unveil Windows Phone later this month, and we can expect to be able to witness Windows 8 announcements that should be coupled with Surface.
We're still unsure as to where and when Surface hardware will be made available, though reports have been flooding in that Suning will be distributing the tablets in China, which gives hope that major retailers across the world could well be the places to check out for Microsoft's latest products.
Former Microsoft employee Charlie Kindel has explained how "Surface is not a business", and the company is simply showing OEM partners how Windows 8 tablets should be created, as well as showing off stunning hardware and software combinations to competitors.
"That is why Microsoft is building Surface. They are not building Surface to be a business. They are building it for the same reason they built the Microsoft Store. Think of it as a marketing expense. It shows the rest of the industry what is possible and how to do it right."
One thing's for sure - we can all expect to see some Surface magic soon enough. Be sure to follow @Surface on Twitter for announcements, updates and possible future competitions.
Thanks, Getintothegame, for the heads up!
Got $200? If so, you can afford one of these excellent displays.
Getting a great PC monitor doesn't mean you have to spend megabucks. There are naturally some compromises, and you won't get 4K in that price range. But that's not always a bad thing. These are the best options for less than $200.
Surface Duo is better at multitasking than Galaxy Z Fold 2. Here's why.
The $2,000 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and $1,400 Microsoft Surface Duo are garnering many headlines because of pricing, and they both "fold" in some manner. But these devices are radically different, a point demonstrated with great effectiveness by @iAm_erica in this new video.
