I’ve received inquiries in the past from those in the Phoenix area who’ve wanted to see Microsoft Surface in a public space. While there have been units behind closed doors, now you’ll be able to come in and check out Surface at the Microsoft retail store in the Scottsdale Fashion Mall. Microsoft Surface is not being offered for sale to consumers at the store. Surface is in four distinct merchandise areas at the corners of the store – supporting Games, Mobility, Personalization and PCs.
Microsoft worked closely with our partners Vectorform, Identity Mine, Infusion and Wirestone to create custom applications for the retail experience and we’ve also included some other engaging applications that showcase Microsoft Surface for visitors to the store. You will find a mobility selection tool for Windows Phones as well as a Surface version of the hit service Skin-It for mobile phones, laptops and other devices. There are other applications that offer the visitor utility, exploration and fun.
If you’re in the area, stop by and check Microsoft Surface out. Here’s the press release about the Microsoft Store. - Eric (@mssurface)
