The Surface Tablet, complete with Nokia style iconic cyan/magenta[red]/black colours won the tech blogosphere around with some high attention to detail you’d expect from the Jobsian Fruit company.
One highly precise but possibly easily overlooked aspect is the sound that the stand makes as the hinge clicks into place (makes me remember the video where Nokia designers talk about the sound the N97 hinge made). That satisfying hinge sound takes quite a prominent role in the video below. (As well as the sound when the magnet clips from the super slim keyboard latches on).
I don’t know about you but I really like what they’ve done with it. Modern, interesting, memorable and leaves me with an impression that this is a device to watch out for. Nokia marketing peeps, take note please.
I love the focus on the hinge, on the keyboard part, and on the metro UI. Unique things for this particular product subset.
I love the colours, the music, the host of dancers (all very good looking peeps, the fit ladies, the well groomed men, the family, the guy who looks like JGL – makes it easier to like the product somewhat)

Cheers Dan for the tip!
BTW, I also liked MS’ own promo.
Not sure I’m interested in getting the Surface myself – especially at that resolution. I don’t know what MS was talking about when they’re saying their screen is easier to read. I’ll have to see it in person first.
