Microsoft just announced the new Microsoft Surface at their Los Angeles press event. It will come in two versions. One running Windows RT on an ARM processor from Nvidia, and a second using an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor, running Windows 8 Pro. They use Corning Gorilla Glas 2, got dual 2×2 Memo antennas, a 10.6 inch display, front / rear cameras and a built in stand. The edges are  beveled, chiseled at a 22-degree angle, so the tablet feels natural in your hand
