There will be a Microsoft Surface with Windows RT (ARM) and one with Windows 8 on Intel.

It has a digital pen input. The digital ink is “sampled” at 600 dpi.

“This surface has two digitizers. One for touch, one for digital ink. It sees the proximity of the pen and stops taking hand inputs.”

The pen magnetizes to the body of the device.

“What if you prefer tactile keys? We have another product — the Type Cover. I can touch type on this as fast as I can type on any keyboard. Full trackpad with clicking buttons. I’d like to pull all of the family together.”
