This week Microsoft announced Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2.
Cool things I’ve noticed:
- Surface 2 (the new version of Surface RT) now includes Outlook
- Backlit keyboards!
- An extra 200GB of SkyDrive space for two years
- 60% increased battery life on the Surface Pro 2
- Australian prices seem to be comparable to US this time round – from $529 for the Surface 2 and $1019 for the Surface Pro 2
The new devices arrive 22 October in Australia. You can pre-order now from Microsoft, Harvey Norman, and JB HI-FI. I am quite happy with my Dell XPS 12 for now, still waiting for something around the iPad Mini/Nexus 7 size 🙂
