It is a tablet, no it is a PC

These 4 have to fight it out
One of them is well trenched but the others are heavy weights too, except on of them has weakened
Four tablets have made news in recent times and it is time to take a look at their specs. These four are,
  • Surface Pro 2: Microsoft
  • iPad Air: Apple
  • Nokia 2520: Nokia
  • Kindle Fire HDX 8.9
Each of them have pluses and minuses compared to others. They are also sweetening the deals and motivating the users.

Here are some basic details you may already know.

Surface Pro 2, Windows 8.1 based product,0.53" thick;  charges in 2 to 4 hours. The nice thing is you can put stuff into it and take it out relatively easily with ports. If you don't like ports use SkyDrive for free (one year). It has business applications perfected over decades. I suppose enterprise customers will buy them as presents to their employees. It is a tablet, no it is a PC.
Free Skype voice calling 60 countries for 1 yr and free storage on SkyDrive.
