    The folks at PC World have done a lengthy writeup comparing the new Microsoft Surface tablet to all the other high-end tablet competitors. This probably doesn't come as a surprise, but the main focus of their story is between the Surface and the iPad. Still, their article makes some interesting points and might be worth a quick read, but the most useful thing from the piece was the hand-dandy comparison chart that you can see pictured above. It even includes some of the unreleased devices like the Transformer Infinity and the Iconia A700. There's obviously still some info missing as some of the manufacturers have yet to release those particular details (like Microsoft's pricing), but the chart is worth checking out to see how all the tablets stack up to each other.

    Microsoft just needs to price this right.

    thanks Fonzz, I was having a hard time reading the details

    the surface looks very interesting, but it is all going to come down to pricing (and chances are its going to be too rich for my blood)

    My concern would be software for the device, although with the supposed compatability with Windows 8 PC's, that may not be a huge issue in the next year. ATM though, Apple and Google have a huge head-start with Apple having arguably a better app selection for it's devices.
