Surface 2
Surface 2
Fact sheet
September 2013
Surface 2 is the most productive tablet for personal use. It offers all the entertainment and
gaming capabilities you expect from a tablet, along with the ability to get work done. Surface 2
is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, making apps run faster and smoother and
increasing battery life to up to 10 hours of video playback. The 10.6-inch ClearType Full HD
display now renders 1080p video for enjoying shows and movies, and its full-size USB port has
been upgraded to USB 3.0 for up to four times faster file transfers. Camera resolution has also
increased, with a 3.5-megapixel front camera and 5-megapixel rear camera, both capable of
capturing 1080p video and featuring improved low-light performance, making face-to-face
conversation with your favorite people crisp and clear. Even with these and other upgrades,
Surface 2 is slightly thinner and lighter than its predecessor.
Surface 2 will ship with Windows RT 8.1, bringing improvements in key areas such as
personalization, search, multitasking, built-in apps, the Windows Store experience and cloud
connectivity. The new Xbox Music allows you to stream millions of songs for free, and an
updated Video app and great games from the Windows Store such as “Halo: Spartan Assault”
will ensure that you never run out of ways to play. When it’s time to get serious, Surface 2 is preloaded with Microsoft Office 2013 RT — including Outlook 2013 RT; simply click in a Touch or
Type Cover and get to work.
To help people get the most out of Surface 2, customers purchasing the device will receive free
Skype calling to landlines in more than 60 countries for one year, unlimited Skype WiFi on their
Surface 2 at more than 2 million hot spots worldwide for one year and 200 GB of free SkyDrive
storage for two years.
