Microsoft posts two video interviews on new Surface tablets

Microsoft has already posted up some videos showing off their newly announced Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets. Today, the hype machine at the company continues to generate more Surface content with two more videos that feature interviews with Surface team members taken as part of Monday's New York City press event.

The first video, as posted on Microsoft's YouTube channel, is the latest in the company's "On the Whiteboard" series. Host Pamela Woon interviews Brian Hall from Microsoft's Surface team as he gives a quick overview of the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 as well as some accessories like the docking station and the new Type Cover. It's pretty basic stuff but if you haven't seen any of the other Surface announcements yet, this is a good place to start.

The other, and much more interesting, video interview is with Surface team member Panos Panay, conducted by Next at Microsoft writer Steve Clayton. Panay says that it has been a roller coaster ride over the past year as the team has expanded to help launch the new tablets. Panay says that team members have to think like product makers above all else to join the Surface group.

The video also has Panay commenting on the new two position kickstand on both models, taking feedback on adding new features and more. Panay also has a  funny "secret" that he reveals at the end, and involves Stevie Bathiche, the Director of Research in Microsoft's Applied Sciences Group.
