It's only been a few hours since Microsoft's official announcement of its newest piece of hardware, the Surface tablet. Though CNET was able to get hands-on time with the device, here we also present vendor shots from Microsoft's own press department.

With the built-in kickstand, users can sit back and enjoy while viewing videos or Web chatting.

In addition to the Touch Cover, there's a thicker, more traditional keyboard called Type Cover. The Surface itself will also come in two versions, one running Windows RT and the other running Windows 8 Pro.

The Surface comes with rear- and front-facing camera dubbed LifeCams. Though there's no word yet on the specs of either camera, the rear-facing camera is angled at 22 degrees to offset the angle of the kickstand.
