The so-called Microsoft Mystery has been solved with the introduction of the new "Surface" tablet Monday.

As GeekWire reports, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer used the software company's history of hardware innovation to frame the announcement.

“Much like Windows 1.0 needed the mouse to complete the experience, we wanted to give Windows 8 its own companion hardware innovation. It’s something new, it’s something different, it’s a whole family of computing devices from Microsoft,” Ballmer said.

The device supports a full-sized USB port and is just 9.3 millimeters thick, according to a Microsoft news release. Additional details about Surface are available on the product's new website, Surface.com.
