Microsoft, Samsung deliver Surface SUR40 multi-touch tables

Surface SUR40 arrives a year later

Microsoft on Monday confirmed that the first Surface 2.0 table, the Samsung Surface SUR40, was shipping. Coming out a year after it was first shown, the multi-touch table introduces optics in the panel itself that can see objects and react accordingly. It can now react to as many as 50 simultaneous contact points and uses a quicker 2.9GHz AMD Athlon II X2, a Radeon HD 6700M graphics chip, and runs on Windows 7.

In a minor touch, the SUR40 now gets one of the largest uses of Gorilla Glass to help it survive most casual forms of abuse. The table's new touch input and more modern equipment let it slim down enough to where it can sit on a wall or otherwise be less obtrusive.

Although it's intended primarily for stores and other large-scale companies, Microsoft and Samsung are selling the SUR40 at a higher than originally mentioned $8,400 for the pure display and $9,049 for a complete device with a table and a stand.
