    After months of speculation, dozens of rumors, and refreshingly little hardware actually leaking in advance, it's time for Microsoft's second generation of Surface tablets to go official. The company took to the stage at this morning's New York City press event to reveal its latest slates, the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. First off, Microsoft started the event by announcing that it had two tablets to share - that seems to dash our hopes of a surprise Surface Mini.

    For those of you wondering if Microsoft will continue selling their Surface tablet, well, let's just say that the company has to figure out how to get rid of that overstock anyway. New reports have Redmond already working on a Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 that are both using the exact same designs from last year, but this time powered by the new Intel Hashwell Core i5 chip, in the case of the Surface Pro 2. Sadly we still don't have details on which processor the regular Surface 2 will have. An interesting twist to the design of both tablets is that apparently the kickstand, love it or ...
