DisplayMate has released its analysis of the Surface RT display comparing it to the iPad 3 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The displays were compared in the following categories: Screen Reflections, Brightness and Contrast, Colors and Intensities, Viewing Angles, Display Backlight Power Consumption, and Running Time on Battery.

Conclusion:
The display on the Microsoft Surface RT outperforms all of the standard resolution full size 10 inch Tablets that we have tested in our Display Shoot-Out series. The Lab tests and measurements documented in the Shoot-Out Comparison Table below indicate that Microsoft has paid a lot of attention to display performance for the Surface RT. In particular, on-screen text is significantly sharper, it has a better factory display calibration, and also significantly lower screen Reflectance than the iPad 2 and all full size 1280x800 Android Tablets. But it is not as sharp as the iPad 3 or 4, nor does it have their large full Color Gamut. We’ll have to wait for the high resolution Windows Pro Tablets that will be launching in early 2013 for direct comparisons with the high resolution iPads and Android Tablets. This is a great start for Windows Tablets and brings much needed competition to the Tablet marketplace.

It's great to compare a new tablet against last generation technology. Maybe next we can see an article comparing Edge network performance among the major carriers.

No LTE on Surface = Fail. Speaker on Surface is very Quiet = Fail Keyboard is nice on Surface. Yes the Screen is crappy on Surface & the back is plastic.
