More Than Just a Tablet
Surface 2 Finally Arrives in Malaysia
The wait is officially over, as Microsoft Malaysia launched the Surface 2 and the accompanying Typer Cover 2 and Touch Cover 2 at GSC Signature Cinemas, The Garden, Mid Valley City last month. The tablet, which ships with Windows RT 8.1, was introduced on stage by Rukmani Subramaniam, Chief Marketing and Operations Officer of Microsoft Malaysia.
“We’re incredibly thrilled with the enthusiastic response that Malaysians have towards our Surface line of tablets thus far. The launch of the Surface 2 continues this momentum in bringing in a new category of devices that have transformed the way Malaysians work and play,” Rukmani commented.
Powered by NVIDIA Tegra 4, the Surface 2 features a 10.6-inch ClearType Full HD display, USB 3.0 port, 3.5MP front camera, 5MP rear camera, a dual-angle kickstand, and provides up to 10 hours of video playback. The device is also pre-loaded with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 RT and Outlook 2013 RT.
The Surface 2 retails at RM1,399 for the 32GB model and RM1,699 for the 64GB model. Of the new accessories, both the Touch Cover 2 and Type Cover 2 offers backlit keys and improved typing experience, amongst other improvements. The new Surface Edition Arc Touch Mouse pairs via Bluetooth and can be flatten for easy stowage.
Those who purchase the new Surface 2 will receive free Skype calls to landlines (in more than 60 countries) for one year, unlimited Skype Wi-Fi for one year, and 200GB of free OneDrive storage for two years.
Meet the new Surface 2, made thinner and faster for people who want to do more. Rukmani Subramaniam, Chief Marketing and Operations Officer, Microsoft Malaysia.
