The Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface Pro will be considerably different from the Kindle Fire HD 8.9. For a start the Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface Pro will have a considerably large screen. The Microsoft Surface RT will have a 10.6 inch display which will be one of the biggest displays among all the contemporary tablets. The Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface keyboard cover is also said to be completely different from the existing tablets. Another differentiating factor between the two tablets would be that the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 will be ad supported and will feature sponsored screen savers with ad in the corners of the screen. The price which has been fixed by Amazon for its 4G enabled models of $499 will also give it a competitive edge to its competitors.

In addition, the Kindle Fire HD will be ad-supported, with sponsored screensavers (shown at right) and an ad in the corner of the home screen. The gist of this statement is that Amazon has pegged a price for its highly advanced featured tablets which is low and will require any introduction from Microsoft to be priced very low.
