Microsoft just has started taking preorders for the Surface tablet on its official website. The slate is priced at $499 for 32GB model, though you can fork out a little more payment to grab an optional keyboard cover or extra storage space.
As we reported, the tablet will be shipping starting October 26th.
To remind you, the new Microsoft Surface Tablet features a 10.6 inch (1366 x 768p) display, and a 1.4 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. Other features also include Windows RT + Office Home & Student 2013 RT.
It looks like, Microsoft is also offering two different types of covers with the slate — only if you pay a bit extra. Wherein, the Touch Cover has a touch-sensitive keyboard, while the Type Cover has physical keys that you actually press down on.
Moreover, the Microsoft Surface tablet is equipped with a kickstand on the back so you can prop it anywhere while using the keyboard.
