Microsoft Surface at CES
Amidst the flurry of hand-held tablets launched at technology trade show CES 2011, Microsoft revealed the revised version of its business-orientated collaborative touch-screen device, Surface.
Having worked with Samsung on the display, the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface has received several upgrades from the pioneering full-size touch-screen device, including infra-red technology called PixelSense. This enables Surface to recognise and respond to both human touch and physical objects placed on the screen, with the ability to ‘see’ more than 50 simultaneous touch points.
Further improvements include a revised interface and new form factor, allowing flexible mounting solutions to diversify the potential business applications of Surface.
The Samsung SUR40 will be available later in 2011.
