Somehow in this day of insider rumors being leaked out, Microsoft kept its latest creation under wraps until just before its Surface tablet was announced. Remarkable in this day.
Microsoft's two 10.6-inch tablets are built on Windows 8 and are expected to ship in three months. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer called the Surface a PC, a tablet and a new experience.
"This will be a threat to Apple's dominance in the tablet market," said Steven Osinski of San Diego State University.
