Surface 2.0 — giant, interactive table — now being shipped

SamsungSUR40 for Microsoft Surface.jpgIt’s the opposite of a Kindle Fire — that is to say, a smaller, cheaper tablet.

But if you’re looking for a table-sized tablet, and one that can work as interactive wall display as well as a table, the Samsung SUR40 — based on Microsoft Surface 2.0 – is now being shipped.

The $8,400 table ($9,049 including stand) that can also be mounted on the wall is being targeted to hospitality and retail ndustries. It has a touch-sensitive, 40-inch LCD screen that can see and sense whatever’s on it, recognizing up to 50 points of simultaneous touch and multiple users (rather than just the typical one user a tablet recognizes).

I had a chance to play with the SUR40 during 2012 CES and it was fun, allowing various users around the table to search for and rotate content on the screen to change the orientation to suit their positions at the table. But, uh, no need for an interactive table at my household. Yet.
