This move smacks of desperation. It's definitely going to alienate their tablet partners.

Microsoft needs to make this work because Win 8 was built specifically for this form factor. Not desktops or laptops.

I think the Type Cover is an innovative move. The Touch Cover is a gimmick. Have a read and let me know what you think

Cautiously optimistic about this. I want this to work because it appears to have everything I want in it!

DIY tablets could be the thing of the future

u can buy OEM windows 8 or free android from the "clouds", choose a ARM or Intel processor + mainboard bundle, battery, LCD, SSD, many colour keyboard, battery pack and casing

mobile computing is getting more powerful and using less power

Oh just release the damn Tablet and complete my Metro-uality lifestyle pls?

Thanks!!!

Does it comes with a Hermes Pouch or something?

Do I have to custom-make from Hermes?
I like this coloured Pouch to go along with my wallet.

'd love to see Google's response @ IO. They must be scurrying like mice now.

Even in its infantile stage, the Surface blows all Android tablets out of the water.
