What does it have to do with Pentax?

Don't you think that it's completely off topic?

Hmmm, even though I use an ipad and Macbook this looks rather good.

I wonder if PKTether would run on it, LR 4 hopefully will.

Mount the camera on a tripod with this new tablet also mounted on the tripod somewhere, could be a nice device combination.

Rather nice for indoor real estate photography.

Just to clarify - Lightroom will run on the Surface 'Pro' version- Basically an Ultrabook in tablet form. in 64gb and 128gb versions.

Nice! This looks slick, I love what they have done with the keyboard. If it runs Lightroom, I'm sold. Bye bye iPad.

Love the look of the tablet. HATE the look of Windows 8 - I just don't get it, to me it looks ugly and clunky.
Wonder if can run other OS's on it?

So how is this Pentax news? Does it have a K-mount (and FF sensor)?

This has nothing to do with Pentax. Moved to General Talk.
