The company has only generated $853 million in revenue sine the debut of the Surface RT and the Surface Pro last year. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told CNET's Shara Tibken that the two companies are "working hard" to make The Surface 2 more successful than it's predecessor.

According to ZDnet, Microsoft's Q4 earnings were dismal, despite the reductions in price for the Surface RT tablet. The company has only generated $853 million in revenue sine the debut of the Surface RT and the Surface Pro last year. 

Although the price comparison may be a jarring factor, the specifications also vary. As previously reportedThe Surface Pro operates at 2.6GHz with a Dual-Core processor. The display runs on 1920 x 1080 megapixels, and contains a 42 W-h battery. The resolution measures at 1.2-megapixels for the front and back cameras. Other features include a full USB port and expendable storage.

Huang said that the next version of the Surface will include Outlook, which was not available at the time of the launch last fall. "It is the killer app for Windows," Huang told CNET. "Now we're going to bring it with the second-generation Surface. We're working really hard on it, and we hope that it's going to be a big success."

The iPad has a screen size of 9.7 inches and 2,048 x 1,536 pixels. The tablet also uses a rear-facing and front-facing camera with 1.2 megapixels.

Only time will tell whether the Surface 2 will compete with Apple's iPad tablet.
