Microsoft Surface Tablet in wonderful video promotion

Several months ago we started bringing readers details of an upcoming Microsoft tablet with two variants that are set to be released on October 26, the Windows RT Surface and the Windows 8 Pro Surface. We are now very close to launch and the anticipation for the Microsoft Surface tablet is building up nicely so we thought to keep you going while you’re waiting we’d bring you a wonderful video promotion. Even if you hadn’t already considered purchasing the Surface you might well change your mind after this slick and polished promo from Microsoft.

The Surface was announced back in June and we recently told how an Apple event to announce the iPad mini might now take place on October 23, maybe in a bid to overshadow the appearance of the Surface just days later. There are still plenty of elements about the Surface tablet that are not yet known and the video that was released in June plays up to this, with a very enigmatic and mysterious feel. As we’re only days away from seeing the Surface hit shelves we thought it would be good to give readers the original promo look. You can view the video, which is just over one minute long, below this story.

We were reminded of the video by Redmond Pie, which predicts that more promotional videos for the Surface are imminent and point out that billboard posters for the tablet are now being displayed in many US cities. Hopefully before the actual release we’ll see something that shows us a bit more about what we can expect in the way of features. The Windows RT Surface tablet comes in 32 or 64GB storage options while the Windows 8 Pro Surface comes in 64 or 128GB variants.

Rumored specs and features for the Windows RT Surface are a 10.6-inch display and NVIDIA Tegra-based processor while the Windows 8 Pro Surface also has a 10.6-inch display but more oomph in the form of an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor. We have to say that looking at the video again it has got our mouths watering and Microsoft could have a really credible rival to the Apple iPad on its hands. Indeed judging by many of the comments to the YouTube video, Microsoft could achieve some really big sales of its upcoming tablet.

We’re really interested to hear from readers about the Surface tablet. Are you eager to find out more about this and can’t wait to see it arrive just in time for the holiday season? Will you be adding it to your wish list? Let us know with your comments.

    Im terribly excited about microsoft surface pro but its only going to be released months from now along with the worrying caveat that it may not have a good battery life 🙁 in my mind, i hope that when the pro version comes out and uses the RT versions of the applications, the processor would downclock and achieve battery life on par or better with other tablets and that when it uses x86, it intelligently switches so it is powerful enough while maintaining battery life about the same as an average laptop…i dont know the real logistics of processors though, im just hoping something like that is possible..either ways though im expecting a relatively lengthy charge time with that battery capacity..I need to know more information and the excitementis killing me D::

    If microsoft can build something like this they should try to make their own PC’s. They would do well and make something able to compete with Apple. And also windows phone

    If this has an intel version with a good GPU then yes I would say I may be a convert even from the ipad.
    It needs to do something more than just touch gaming, I want steam, I want to be able to install AAA games.
    I dont expect to run them at full spec but it needs to be playable.
    I need to be able to run games off a thunderbolt or firewire drive and them to be playable.
    I need 4GB’s of ram
    I need full screen HDMI out
    I need VLC to work on it
    I need mouse support

    If it has all this…………I need a surface
