Evening poll: So, are you considering a Surface RT or an iPad Mini tablet?
While we’re focused on Android related news, we’d be remiss to ignore what else is going on in the tech world, and today the big news is both Microsoft and Apple are poised to release their newest entrants into the tablet space. Firstly, Microsoft has released pricing information and opened preorders for their upcoming Surface tablet, running Windows RT. The Surface RT is priced at $559 for the 32GB model, is aiming to be delivered to customers by October 26, and spec-wise is roughly on par with the current 10″ Android tablets in the market.
Secondly, Apple has announced a special event for October 23, where they are expected to announce a 7″ iPad that has been leaked to death over the Internet, and is rumoured to arrive at a $299 price point.
Both of these devices are potentially very strong competitors in the tablet space, and perhaps Google will have to redouble its efforts to maintain market share.
Do either of these devices pique your interest? Vote in the poll below, and let us know more in the comments!
