The ongoing Build 2013 witnessed two announcements for developers-an Acer Iconia W3 Windows 8 tablet by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at the start of the keynote, and a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 by Julie Larson-Green, corporate vice president for Windows at the end of conference.
The Surface Pro2 is not supposed to come with Windows 8.1 but will be a perfect choice for Build developers to install the released preview.
Microsoft traditionally offers something at its Build. However, the two devices offered at this year’s event are not somewhat unique; the focus was surely on Microsoft’s operating system Windows. One is a tablet and the other being a laptop which can be used as tablet which pretty much sums up the state of the PC space right now. The last year’ event was more rewarding for attendees who got a Surface RT and 100GB of SkyDrive storage in addition to Lumia 920 to boot by Nokia’s Richard Kerris.
This was the first day of Build 2013, and would continue till Friday. Wait for more revelations from Microsoft and we will keep you updated.
