Microsoft Surface Tablets to Come in Two Screen Resolutions?

Anyone who's remotely interested in tech should know by now that Microsoft has announced its own tablets. Called the Surface, there will be two models: A Windows RT version and a Windows 8 Pro version. So far, Microsoft has been coy about details such as battery life, processor speeds, and amount of RAM. What we do know is that both tablets will be of 10.6-inch widescreen size, and will use Gorilla Glass. But how about their resolutions?

A spec sheet (PDF) posted by Microsoft online seems to suggest that the Windows 8 Pro model will use a full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution display. The Windows RT version's display is simply listed as "10.6-inch ClearType HD Display". Does that mean that it will use a 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution display? Looking at the resolutions that most 10 to 11-inch devices offer right now, it won't be surprising that the Windows RT Surface tablet might eventually end up with a typical panel resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels.
