Microsoft Surface 2.0 Tables Pushed Out to January

Posted by at 12:47 pm on October 12, 2011

In January at CES, Microsoft, in partnership with Samsung, announced a new, updated, multi-touch tabletop computer. The 40-inch Microsoft Surface 2.0, also known as the Samsung SUR40, was expected to be available for purchase later this year. Samsung has now slipped the official release date back to January of next year.

Neither Microsoft nor Samsung explained the delay, but some Surface developers indicated there were some issues with the software powering the device. The four-inch thick computer on legs runs a version of the Windows 7 Professional OS on an embedded AMD Athlon II X2 2.9GHz processor. It comes paired with an AMD Radeon HD 6700M Series GPU. The 40-inch touchscreen offers a 1920×1080 (1080p) resolution.

The table is expected to carry a $7,600 price tag when shipped. The original release 1.0 of the Surface is priced around $12,000
