    Microsoft is set to release the its own set of tablets known as surface.
    The tablet will come in two versions
    one running Window RT, a 'light' version of Window 8
    a pro version running the full operating system.



    Microsoft unravelled the following battery details about its tablets:
    >>It has given a 31.4Wh rating battery to the Windows RT Surface.
    >>Windows 8 Pro Surface will be powered by a battery of rating 42Wh.

    :::Comparing these with the apple ipad whom the tablets are supposed to be meant to give competition.:::
    Apple ipad 3 is powered by a battery of 42.5 Wh and
    Apple claims that it lasts 10 hours while browsing the Web, watching video or listening to music.
    So we can assume the pro version will more or less give the same battery performance as apple.
    The Windows RT Surface battery capacity is 25% less than the iPad's, putting its lifespan at 7.5 hours.



    you can watch the video regarding some other detals about the tablets:

    hi there,

    Windows 8 is developed to be very fast and easy to be handled by the tablets as well as large giants(desktop). the company is putting serious efforts towards it.

    One can be almost sure that window 8 for tablets will give at least 10% more battery life compared to window mango and Android tabs on the same hardware if not more.

    Hi,

    the battery life of Windows tablet will be comparable to the other Android and Apple makes.

    Windows tablet named Surface , makers at Richmond are well conversant with the scenerio of the recent time and well aware that 5% fluctuation below the currently availables will create headaches for the company.

    So expect a tablet wonderfully suited for the current environment will be presented.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    The avarage battery life of a Windows 8 based tablet or the Microsoft developed Windows 8 tablet are pretty good.

    Battery life of any system will depend primarily on the price tag attached to it.

    But the real efficiency of Windows 8 is it`s less hungry attitude, and in some template of comparison, Windows 8 is less resource hungry than Windows 7, though it is much feature rich.
