On Wednesday at CES, Microsoft & Samsung announced the new Surface 2.0, which is now thinner and smarter than ever before.

With the new PixelSense technology, Microsoft Surface now sees and responds to touch and real-world objects. With the new 40” Samsung SUR40 technology, Microsoft Surface can now be used as a table or mounted on a wall!

The Surface is no longer the cube-shaped box with cameras inside – now it’s just 4 inches thick. The cube shaped form factor has been replaced with tough Gorilla Glass screen and infrared sensors, which give better response and accuracy.

Instead of having cameras underneath the glass, the new PixelSense technology makes “each pixel a camera”, so “each pixel sees”. What’s more, the surface is now much lighter, now that the “box” underneath has vanished.

Surface is now embedded with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. The SUR40 can be purchased from Samsung. Microsoft is no longer selling Surface 1.0 hardware.
