Did Microsoft just announce the death of Surface?

With the announcement of Office for iPad, the iPad has become a stronger alternative for those who may be considering the Surface (RT version). With more apps behind it, the iPad has gained momentum which is sorely lacking for Surface now.

Is the Surface still a viable product against the iPad?

Would you still recommend the Surface over the iPad?

What do you think Microsoft should do to increase the value of Surface?

Post your thoughts.
