I watch closely the progress on Surface and there are some meaningful commercial launches now and secondly of course many more 'lab' developments going on. A good place to stay in touch is the Surface team blog. Here are some recent developments all in shiny video format:
1. Launch of the AT&T Surface device - see the first commercial application live for Surface working
2. The next commercial device to be launched - Harrah's Las Vegas entertainment device
Video: Microsoft Surface at the Rio in Las Vegas
3. And spotted by Steve Clayton this is amazing - showing the mash up of Seadragon Deep Zoom technology on the Surface device plus a never-seen-before skunkworks application at the end of the video
4. Basic SDK demo - this is interesting to see how easy development for the Surface platform could be with the SDK
I am sure we will see more developments soon - and hopefully a Surface device in Australia - I keep asking !!
