Tablet dilemma!

I’ve been on the look out for tablets. Jumping from website to website, shop to shop… Finding the one thing that could possibly upgrade my productivity. There are many tablets on the market but I have come down to two potential tablets. So I have looked at both specifications looking at roughly the same price ranges to keep it fair. Here is what I got:
Sony Duo 11 Slider Black Microsoft Surface
Processor Intel® CoreTM i5-3317U, 1.7GHz 3rd Gen Intel Core i5 Processor
Operating System Windows 8 Pro Windows 8 Pro
Storage 128GB SATA Flash SSD 128GB SATA Flash SSD
Memory 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3L-SDRAM 4GB RAM—Dual Channel Memory
Display 29.4cm LED 1920×1080 + webcam 10.6″ ClearType Full HD Display 1920×1080 + webcam
Graphics Intel® HD Graphics 4000 Intel® HD Graphics 4000
Stylus Digitizer Stylus (pen)included Pen input and pen (included with purchase)
Battery life Battery life up to 6.5 hours Estimated 5-6 hours
Price £919 $899
Release Out now U.S Release for 9th February 2013

So from looking at my comparison table I created myself, it is almost a direct match in specifications but a difference in pricing! Mind you, the Windows surface is confirmed in U.S and not in U.K so I cannot compare it but I was told it was going off for roughly £800 but that is what I heard.
My decision can be finalised upon patience. The Microsoft Surface is not out so I cannot judge it but if I am impatient, then I would get the Sony Duo 11 Slider Black despite the price difference. But truth be told, I am currently leaning more upon the Sony product!
What do you reckon?
