NEW YORK — Sept. 23, 2013 — The next generation of the Surface family of products was unveiled in New York today and will hit store shelves Oct. 22.
The new Surface products feature an extensive list of upgrades: longer battery life, more powerful processors, upgraded front and rear cameras, Windows 8.1, and functional enhancements like the new dual-action kickstand. Both models feature brilliant new 1080p HD screens and the sleek-yet-rugged industrial design that has become a trademark of the Surface line.
With improved accessories and special offers, Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 will offer a stylish and powerful combination that goes from tablet to laptop and back again. Starting under $500 and powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, Surface 2 is one of the fastest tablets around, and with its fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Surface Pro 2 can handle any task, whether you’re on the go, on the beach or on a deadline.
