Why Microsoft Surface Is Better Tablet Beating iPad And Nexus 7
Apple iPad is surely the best tablet you can have for the price, but with Google Nexus 7 and Microsoft Surface announced you will find it hard selecting the right one. Google and Microsoft have already unveiled their tablet and are hoping to catch up and acquire the lost ground. Google Android powered tablets have managed to make profit, but mainly as low end cheap alternatives.
However, it is Microsoft Windows 8 Surface tablets coming to the stores later this year that is expected to give Apple iPad some real competition. A while back, Microsoft unveiled the Surface tablet, which is considered as a deviation from their normal business strategy of providing Windows OS to OEMs and not getting into the hassles of designing and manufacturing the hardware.
Now, how Microsoft Surface is going to change the buyer’s perception about the tablets. The Surface offers stunningly smart Touch Cover, which though looks like the iPad Smart Cover, but it has a keyboard that will make it as efficient as a laptop while keeping it right inside the domain of a tablet computer. Furthermore, distinctive is the hardware specs itself; there are two distinct Surface models: The Microsoft Surface RT, and the Surface Pro. The first version is powered by ARM chip and runs Windows RT, and will satisfy buyers looking for tablets with long battery backup and priced to compete with similar ARM rivals. The Pro version is powered by an Intel and runs Windows 8 Pro, making it the right gadget in search of a tablet that can also replace heavier laptops.
On the other side, Google Nexus 7 comes with a disappointingly small seven-inch display, which is only going to make life tougher for other Android powered tablets that are already feeling the heat from the upcoming iPad mini. Google partnered with ASUS to bring the much-anticipated tablet into a reality, and it is mainly designed to satisfy users looking for gadget bigger than a smartphone and can play games and do surfing. Google Nexus 7 is priced at $199, which is tempting for anyone on tight budget.
Google surely is targeting for the Amazon Kindle and Fire here and Apple iPad or Microsoft Surface is not in the list. So, if you know only MS Office and Windows OS, then Microsoft Surface is the best bet as it has all the elements of popular iPad and added advantage of the familiar operating system.
