Here’s the video of Microsoft’s 45-minute press event yesterday introducing and demoing the Surface. I think this is a smart move in the right direction for Microsoft. The Touch Cover looks like a great idea, and it also gives a bit more context for why they needed to add a built-in stand (however, I could have sworn I heard a cricket when Steven Sinofsky revealed the kickstand).

But there are still two big unknowns: pricing and availability.
