Yeah, that's one marketting decision I'd like to see the reasoning for. Let's release a product with the same name as another, totally different product we're already selling. What could go wrong?

Surface seems more like a theme than one particular form factor; but they are pretty radically different in terms of size of course.

It appears to be a solid product judging from the keynote (apart from the demo failure at the beginning).

So far it looks like a replacement for my 1st gen iPad (even 3rd gen, but don't have one heh)

I wonder if they'll have Pixelsense in v2. That is, as far as I know, unique to the Surface table.
