|Microsoft Surface 2 unveiled|
Last weekend we were invited to Fidgets City at the swanky Marina Bay Sands to get a first look at the newly launched Microsoft Surface 2. As regular IOS and the occasional Android user, to have a go at a Windows base tablet is an intriguing preposition.
The deal was even sweeter when the boys are invited to roam the Fidgets City while I take my time to explore the new Microsoft Surface 2.

It is a bonus too when 2 of the most popular education franchises - Sesame Street and Dr Seuss are included in the Surface 2. Popular games like Talking Tom and Disney Infinity : Toy Box are included out of the box, together with education apps such as Dictionary.com and Wikipedia. Surface 2 is also preloaded with Microsoft Office Home and Student RT and Outlook RT for productivity on the go.

Extra accessories includes a Type Cover 2 ( S$183) and Touch Cover 2 (S$168) With these accessories, you need not worry about buying a cover as these keyboards have the dual function of covers for the Surface 2

This is perfect for photos sharing or even editing of blog post on the go. It comes free with 7MB for document and an additional 3 MB for photos. Registration is a breeze as you only required a Microsoft Live account to sign on.
On the surface, this tablet feels like a winner. However since we had only a few minutes to explore it, it is difficult to tell if it would be as effective in a real world usage. Perhaps Microsoft would be willing to sponsor us a unit for our own use ?
We would definitely like to look beneath the surface and prove its effectiveness.
Microsoft Surface 2 is now available in most electronic stores island wide.
