Surface 3 vs. iPad Air 2: The complete specs comparison

Microsoft surprised a number of industry watchers earlier this week when it quietly unveiled a brand new tablet. With little fanfare, the company took the wraps off of its new Surface 3, a surprisingly capable and affordable new convertible slate that runs full Windows and starts at just $499. Microsoft’s tablet-top devices are now much more attainable; the more powerful Surface Pro 3 starts at $799.

Comparing the Surface 3 to the iPad Air 2 is a bit odd considering one runs a desktop-grade operating system while the other runs a mobile OS. While it’s true that the gap between the two is narrowing each day, there is still a gap and it is still incredibly wide.

But if people are going to compare the Surface 3 and iPad Air 2, let’s make sure we’ve covered all the bases. More →

Microsoft will launch another new Surface tablet in October – but not the Surface mini

Microsoft reportedly had plans to unveil a new Surface mini tablet alongside the Surface Pro 3 earlier this year, but the company supposedly cancelled those plans when it realized the mini tablet didn’t offer much in the way of compelling differentiation. Some reports suggest the Surface mini is back in the mix and could launch later this summer, while others state that tablet has been shelved indefinitely. Whatever the case may be, it looks like Microsoft has another new Surface tablet in store for us this fall. More →

Surface 3, Surface Mini launch reportedly set for late 2014

Despite not making any announcements at CES 2014, Microsoft has been unofficially tied to new products that were on display at the trade show, including NVIDIA’s Tegra K1, which will reportedly equip the Surface 3 and AMD’s Mullins processor that’s apparently considered for the rumored Xbox TV. Of the newly announced Tegra K1 processor versions, the Surface 3 will reportedly make use of the 64-bit version, dubbed Denver, which will arrive later this year. The new Windows tablet/laptop may only launch at end of 2014, @MSFTnerd tweeted (via Microsoft-News), and it will likely be preceded by Surface Mini and LTE versions of the Surface 2. The “Surface notebook” plans are apparently on hold according to the same source, and Microsoft is considering using AMD’s Mullins processor inside the Xbox TV, instead of its custom chip produced by Samsung.
