At CES 2011, Microsoft unveiled its next-gen Surface 2.0. The device Samsung SUR40 demoed, still in preproduction, is an impressive piece of hardware engineering and industrial design, in development for approximately the last year and a half. In collaboration with Samsung, Microsoft has turned the "big table" on its head into an object of desire. Interestingly, it actually supports custom table stands (this demo unit has a curved wood stand vs. metallic poles used in keynote).
