If you have been following our coverage of Windows 8, whether it be early looks, the new logo, the consumer preview or the most recent release preview, there has been one consistent question: would Microsoft make a branded device to be the flagship of the OS? That question was answered Monday when Microsoft unveiled Microsoft Surface.
Now, you might recognize that name from CES 2011 or CES 2012 as the Samsung SUR40, a 40-inch, Microsoft-powered, massively multi-touch device powered by PixelSense. Well, that technology will now reside under the PixelSense moniker, as that is really the underlying technology, and the new Windows 8 tablet family will take on the Surface branding in its place.
