…and we’re back. Microsoft executive Panos Panay announced this week at their much-anticipated Surface Pro tablet will launch in January 2013. The Core i5 (Ivy Bridge) powered 10.6 inch tablet that is the Surface Pro will sport 4 GB of RAM, a nice Full HD touchscreen display, dual 720p HD cameras (front and back) and Intel Integrated Graphics 4000.
The tablet will come in two flavors: a 64 GB version which will go for $899 and a more capacious 128 GB variant that will be sold for $999. That’s not too shabby considering the Microsoft Surface Pro basically a whole ultrabook that can compete with the likes of Samsung’s Series 9 and Apple’s 13 inch MacBook Air… albeit in tablet form.
There’s been rumors that the Microsoft Surface RT, which runs a cut-down version of Windows and has been selling for near a month now, hasn’t been a hot seller. So the news of the Surface Pro couldn’t have come at a better time for the many who want to run the full version of Windows 8 (which the Surface Pro has).
