LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES (18/JUN/2012.) 
- The software giant Microsoft unveiled on Monday its Surface tablet to compete with the ubiquitous Apple iPad at a press briefing in Los Angeles. 

The executive director of the Titan computer, Steve Ballmer described the iPhone as a competitor tablet "work and play." 

"It's a community of brand new computers from Microsoft," Ballmer said. "It embodies the notion that 'hardware' and 'software' drive each other forward." 

They also have a backplate keeps it up-down to view images or video, and a cover that, when opened, acts as a keyboard. 

Thus, the tablet can be a small desktop computer. 

The Surface tablet version of the operating system RT measures 9.3 mm wide and weighs 676 grams, and will have 32 and 64 gigabytes of memory, Microsoft said. 

The most powerful model, operating system Windows 8 Pro, measures 13.5 mm wide, weighs 903 grams and is available in 64 and 128 gigabytes. 

Both have a high definition touch screen of 10.6 inches (26.9 centimeters). 

Microsoft did not disclose the price of the tablets Surface or specify when will the market, but probably coincide with the launch of Windows 8 software, which is expected later this year. 

An online video demonstration of the tablet published in microsoft.com / surface / promises that the product will "soon" in the market. 

Surface is also the name of a desktop computer with touch screen giant Microsoft intends to introduce in the market for use in restaurants, shops, bars and other venues. 

"This product marks a significant shift in Microsoft's product strategy," said analyst Sarah Rotman Epps, of the market research firm Forrester. 

"It puts the focus on the consumer rather than the press," he continued in a comment on his blog. "And it allows Microsoft to compete with Apple on a lot smoother." 

However, Microsoft could become "the worst enemy" in the tablet market of the world if overwhelms the audience with too many options and specifications, rather than follow the trend of Apple to offer simple options, the analyst warned. 

"Apple limits your options for connectivity, storage, white or black," he said. 

Microsoft, which built its fortune specializing in software design and leaving their partners work to build computers and equipment, has had mixed results as often as he ventured into the hardware market. 

The colossus based in Redmond, Washington, has stamped its mark on keyboards, headphones, speakers, webcams and mice. 

The most successful company in the field of hardware has been its Xbox game console, in contrast to the failed Zune music player, which stopped manufacturing last year. 

The Xbox debuted in November 2001 to compete with PlayStation systems in a battle to take control of home entertainment.
