It seems like a simple thing to give a tablet lots of ways to connect to other devices. However, many tables don't have those standard connections and slots that we see on desktop and notebook PCs.
In a newly released video from Microsoft, the company goes over the many different ports that it has put into the new Surface tablet. This has been one of the biggest plus points for the Windows RT tablet since it was officially launched one week ago.
The video goes over the fact that it has a full USB 2.0 port, which of course can be used by standard Flash drives to transfer files or for cell phones to both transfer items and to charge them as well.. it also has a mini-HDMI port for connecting the Surface to a big screen TV.
It also has a MicroSD card slot for increasing the amount of storage space for the Surface, up to 64 GB. Of course, it comes with a stereo headphone jack. Perhaps the most interesting port is the power slot, which uses a magnetic power cord to firmly connect it to the Surface. The cord even has a light on top to show users that it is indeed charging the Surface.
