This coming Thursday, AT&T will unveil Microsoft Surface devices in some of their major stores, including in Atlanta. If you happen to be in the metro area, stop by the AT&T store at Lenox Square. I'm going to try to swing by there!
Here's how you can expect AT&T to use Microsoft Surface:
- Learn. Customers can review features of a particular mobile device by simply placing it on the display. Surface will recognize the device and provide a graphical overview of its capabilities. Customers will be able to place two devices side by side on the unit and easily compare their features.
- Explore. Customers view interactive coverage maps at the national, state, local or street level, using simple touch and hand movement to scale and move the maps, determining their coverage area.
- Customize. In the future, customers will be able to drag and drop ring tones, graphics, video and more by “grabbing” content with their hands from a menu on the display and “dropping” it into the phone.
