Surface To Tab! Samsung Whopper 40" LCD Table

By Oonagh Reidy | Monday | 21/11/2011

Samsung's potent 40-inch touch screen Surface enables multiple users touch simultanously...and even recognises objects. Samsung and Microsoft have just announced Surface tablet featuring an AMD Athlon II X2 Dual-Core Processor 2.9GHz, paired with an AMD HD6750M GPU featuring DirectX 11 support to deliver massive horsepower and outstanding graphics.



The 16:9 40 inch 1920 x 1080 HD LCD display recognises fingers, hands, and objects placed on the screen and boasts 50 plus simultaneous touch points thanks to PixelSense technology, which allows the pixels to see what's touching the screen.

The potent touch tab has a whopping 320GB of memory, 4 X USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, Ethernet and allows many users use apps, watch videos or view Microsoft PowerPoint files simultaneously.

The Samsung SUR40, built for Microsoft Surface touch technology, uses all the usual MS office application including Windows 7 Profession x64, is four inches thin and can be hung or embedded on the wall.

Weighing almost 40kg the super sensitive Surface is used for commercial enterprise including education, finance and retail
existing users include Fujifilm and Royal Bank of Canada.

And the good news in the Surface is available on pre-order in Australia and 22 other countries now and will go on release early 2012.

However, no word on local pricing yet although SUR40 sells for around US$7600 in US.

Samsung Australia did tell SmartHouse today that pricing and availability details would be released "in not too distant future."

"We are taking pre-sales orders at this stage with commitments by several end users from different vertical markets," a spokesperson added.

The amazing tablet won "Best of What's New" Award for 2011 from Popular Science magazine and was showcased in CES in January last.

"With what's happening in the world of touch and the fact that touch is becoming ubiquitous, people are looking for more immersive relationships with screens," says said Somanna Palacanda, director of Microsoft Surface.

"The new Surface takes technology that's always existed in the backs of stores and brings it front and center.

"So now customers and retailers can interact together, a doctor and a patient can have a more immersive consulting experience, and a banker and a customer can sit together and work on a simulation where in past the banker would be the only one in control."

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
