On October 22, 2013 Microsoft released the Surface 2 and the Surface 2 Pro. This is the same day that Apple revealed the new iPad Air. It is interesting to see how Apple and Microsoft have shifted away from computers. They are both focusing on the tablet market right now. The Microsoft Surface 2 has a resolution of 1920 X 1080, it also has 2GB of ram and is running on a 1.7 GHZ Quad Core Processor. The Microsoft Surface 2 comes with Windows RT 8.1 and Microsoft Office 2013 RT. The 32GB Surface 2 costs $449 and the 64GB version costs $549. I also like how the Surface 2 comes with a USB port and a micro SD card reader. It is a feature that all tablets should include. Are you going to get the Microsoft Surface 2?
Apple held a press conference earlier today that detailed the release of a new iPad called the iPad Air. It is supposed to be 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter. It also has an Apple A7 processor chip and it runs at 64 bits. The iPad Air has a 9.7 inch display and it comes in two colors, space gray or silver. I have never owned an iPad before, but this new product looks really tempting. I can’t wait to try one out when they come to local stores. The iPad Air will be released on November 1st. It will come in four sizes 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. Will you be getting an iPad Air?
Amazon recently released their new version of the Kindle Fire. It is called the Kindle Fire HDX. This new tablet really improves upon last years model of the Kindle Fire. The Kindle Fire HDX (7inch model) has a quad-core processor with 2.2 GHz. It also has a resolution of 1920×1200 and it has dual stereo speakers with a built in microphone. The resolution is uncommonly high for a seven inch tablet. I believe that the Kindle Fire HDX can really compete with the Nexus Tablet and the iPad Mini. The 16GB version of the Kindle Fire HDX costs $229. The 32GB version costs $269 and the 64GB version costs $309. The Kindle Fire HDX also includes a new feature called the Mayday Button; the Mayday Button allows the user to have instant access to tech support.
