A forthcoming tablet from the makers of Windows and Xbox, Microsoft, offers a built-in keyboard and a lot of things that might remind you of the iPad. The company has announced Surface, a tablet PC meant to challenge the iPad, Apple's tablet computer, which currently enjoys dominance among tablets. Surface has a 10.6 inch screen, a little bigger than an iPad. Also has a kickstand so you can prop it up while using it. No word yet on release date -- or a price.
