Will iPad 5 Kill Surface Pro’s Spotlight?

The new Surface is selling. Microsoft has rolled out the Surface 2, Surface 2 Pro and new accessories for the tablets. But how will the devices fare in a competitive tablet market thatEUs probably going to be hyper-focused on the new iPads this week?

Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 both promise "significant updates." Those updates include more processing power, longer battery life, better display and camera resolution.

Plus, the differentiating Kickstand now offers dual angles that aim to make it more comfortable to use on your lap or at your desk. And enhancements to Windows RT 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Pro make Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 more customizable.

EUI sometimes get asked what the difference is between Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, so IEUll summarize the basic difference between the two devices,EU said Panos Panay, corporate vice president for Microsoft Surface. EUSurface 2 is the most productive tablet for personal use, and Surface Pro 2 is a laptop in the body of a tablet, capable of running all Windows software and Windows Store apps.EU

The Most Productive on the Planet

Panay boldly declared that Surface is the most productive tablet on the planet. ItEUs not just a laptop, he said, as laptops arenEUt as thin or light and donEUt have a battery that lasts an entire day. And itEUs not just a tablet, he said, because tablets donEUt have click-in keyboards and Microsoft Office that allow real work to get done.

EUItEUs not like any device youEUve ever seen,EU Panay said. EUSurface lets you run your favorite apps right alongside your favorite apps -- Xbox Music next to the document youEUre working on in Word, News next to Facebook, or a Web page next to a Web page for a quick view of two things. . . .EU
