Microsoft announced its entry into the tablet marketplace late last night, with the unveiling of the Surface tablet family.


Two Surface tablets were detailed, one with an ARM processor running Windows RT, and the second featuring a fully powered Intel chip, running Windows 8 Pro. The latter will apparently be powerful enough to give Ultrabooks a run for their money (but at a similar price point too), while the former will provide a cheaper option more likely to rival the iPad.


You can now see the whole announcement as it happened in the keynote video below, and get the lowdown on all the details, from the Surface's built-in kickstand to the its protective covers.


As always, be sure to leave us your thoughts on Microsoft’s announcement in the comments below.

To use your word  - 'Perfect'.   A perfect demonstration, a perfect product.  I cannot wait to purchase 'Serface'.  When will it be available in the u.k.?
