Microsoft Surface Tablets to Equip Delta Air Lines Pilots and 2 Other Hot Stocks to Watch

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT): Current price $33.02

On Monday it was announced that Delta Air Lines is equipping its 11,000 pilots with the Microsoft Surface 2 tablet, which they will use at first as an electronic flight bag instead of heavy paper-based flight kits containing navigational charts and aircraft operating and reference manuals. The device distribution to pilots flying the Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 fleets will commence later in 2013, and all Delta cockpits are forecast to become paperless by the end of next year.
