Comparison Video: MS Surface 2 vs Apple iPad Air

If you'veipad air surface 2 comparison been wondering how Apple's newest tablet, the iPad Air, compares to the recently released Surface 2 then you might want to check out this video. The tablets are similar in size but the iPad Air is lighter by about half a pound. And of course the performance and abilities vary. The Surface 2, for example, can multi-task.

Internally, the $499 iPad Air  and the $449 Surface 2 are just as different as they are externally. As iFixit has shown in the teardown, the iPad Air has a minimal amount of circuitry inside. Like its predecessors, most of its internal space is taken up by batteries. The Surface 2 tablet is almost as spare in terms of circuitry (iFixit), but it does have a few extra bits so it can support the ports and card slots that Steve Jobs didn't see fit to add to the iPad.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
