iPad, Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 are already published in the market, you can purchase from their websites or you may already get one. While the Microsoft Surface will be released in later this year.
We don’t rank for the four products here, since different person prefer device. Like we always said, it’s perfect if you love it, and it’s baddest if you hate it.
However, we put deeply hope on Microsoft Surface for the below reasons;
1, It used a completely new Win 8 OS, which is also used for computer. That may mean, you can do all things same with computer, this is really very attractive.
2, It supports normal USB connection, especially the latest USB 3.0 technology. This seems we can use?mouse and portable hard drive(or U Disk), we can do?accurate works since mouse has much more precision than?fingers. And also can copy or transfer files much easier.
Of course, all the things for Microsoft Surface is still under imagine till it released.
