Microsoft recently announced a new line of tablets dubbed "Surface." However, instead of partnering with any of its traditional hardware friends, Microsoft is going it alone when it comes to Surface manufacturing -- Redmond will make the hardware on its own and load it with its Windows 8 operating system. It's similar to the way Microsoft approaches video games with its Xbox 360 console. However, Microsoft has a history of working with outside hardware partners when it comes to personal computers, and those partners likely have plans to launch Windows 8 tablets of their own.

"The Touch Cover and Type Cover enable Surface to morph from a tablet into a notebook." This feature is interesting and different from other tablets, but Microsoft will have to make it the best in other aspects as well, since the tablet market is really competitive.
