If you want to get things done but also to have fun, it is high time you met the next generation of the Surface family: Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. For both personal and professional use, they are not only productive, they are also entertaining.

Surface Pro 2 is a significant upgrade with a very wide palette of high-performing configurations, with meaningful battery-life improvements so it lasts nearly a full workday, a dual-stage kickstand that works great on your lap, and even faster performance. You can now turn your tablet into a full workstation by easily using the Docking Station that includes a Mini DisplayPort video output, three USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0, an Ethernet port and 3.5mm audio in and out.


The Surface 2 has been fundamentally revamped to make it the most productive personal tablet ever. It is much faster – now with 72 graphics cores, twice the internet speed, USB 3.0, a full HD screen, and a thinner and lighter design. It also includes a 3.5MP front-facing camera optimized for Skype. And most importantly, it is even more productive – now with Outlook RT.


To ensure that you get the most out of your device, we’re including free Skype calling to landlines 60 countries and free Skype WiFi at over two million hotspots for a year, as well as 200GB of SkyDrive storage for two years. The Skype and SkyDrive offers are for both Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2!

Moreover, our fans of Type and Touch Cover won’t be disappointed. Touch Cover 2 is more responsive, thinner, quieter, and even lights up as your hands approach the keys.

Still, Surface 2, Surface Pro, and Surface Pro 2 are not just office friendly. If music is your passion, you need to check the Surface Remix Project, a new purpose-built music kit.

Both Surface devices will be available for pre-order beginning today, September 24, and for purchase on October 22 in select markets – for additional information on pricing and release dates here.
