Overview

Microsoft Surface is a planned series of tablet PCs designed and marketed by Microsoft. The Surface will be available in two versions, “Surface” and “Surface Pro”. “Surface” will run the Windows RT operating system and use an ARM CPU. “Surface Pro” will run the Windows 8 Pro operating system and use an Intel CPU.

Surface has a 10.6-inch, 16:9 widescreen HD Display , and Surface Pro has a 10.6-inch Full HD Display. They both use Microsoft’s ClearType HD Display technology which delivers a great picture for movies. What’s more, Surface is thin, light and it has a great battery. Surface could not be better to play HD video on the go.

While Micrsoft Zune can only play several video formats like MP4, WMV, H.264 video like any portable devices or tablet. The newly released Surface tablet cannot play any other video format either. It is really fantastic if we can play MKV/FLV/3GP/WebM/YouTube/WTV/MTS/AVI/MP4/MOV/M4V HD AVCHD 720p, 1080p, 1080i videos on Surface or play 2048-by-1536 resolution HD video or 1080p video on the new Surface tablet with ClearType HD Display.
