In this episode of “On the Whiteboard,” Editor Pamela Woon is in New York City for the launch of the next generation of Surface devices. She talks to Brian Hall, the general manager of marketing for the Surface team, and gets the inside scoop on the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2.

Some of the improvements that Hall talks about include how the Surface Pro 2 has 75 percent more battery life, a new docking station that converts it to a powerful workstation and a kickstand that you can use on your lap. The Surface 2, Hall explains, is a “complete revamp” of Microsoft’s first tablet, which debuted a year ago. It has a better camera, the new kickstand and the same HD screen as the Pro 2.
