Windows Surface Slate/Tablet Announcements and changes to SUR40 branding




With the announcement of Windows Surface devices see press release and new site which includes additional information including a video and images and the complete event video and announcement on Microsoft News Center.

I just wanted to confirm that the current official Microsoft Surface product branding will change to the “Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft® PixelSense™”. This change is being made to emphasize the Microsoft PixelSense technology that makes the SUR40 unique and more clearly establish that Samsung manufactures, sells, and supports this product.  I am aware a number of Universities have already purchased or about to receive devices, so just to confirm that the name change will take effect this Tuesday June 19th. If you are dealing with resellers I hope this confirmation helps to avoid any confusion with your current or new orders.

The Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft® PixelSense™ still brings people together to connect, learn, and decide using touch and physical objects.

Microsoft PixelSense is a display input processing technology from Microsoft used in the Samsung SUR40, which delivers interaction with touch, physical objects, and an interface designed for multiple people to use at the same time

Please note that “Microsoft Surface” will still continue to exist through the software platform like the SDK 2.0 for developers.
