Microsoft demonstrated the new Surface 2.0 at the CES 2011. If you thought the previous Surface was just too big and bulky, then you would certainly like the new edition. The larger cube-like design is now replaced by a much thinner and “smarter” device. Not only does it detect multi-touch finger movements, it also reads papers placed on top of it. Microsoft says, “Every pixel is acting as a camera, so the surface of the PC can actually see.”
Obviously the Surface 2.0 has now become a gadget a lot of enterprises would seriously consider having. Not only that. The prices have now come down to $7,600 a piece, down from $12,000 for the original version. The Surface 2.0 is also using Gorilla glass, thus making it much more durable.
