    • 0 Comments

    Before you say goodbye to the Olympic games in Vancouver this weekend, you might still have the opportunity to see Microsoft Surface. We had reports of our product being spotted in several venues. Thanks to those who snapped photos.

    Samsung MobileSamsung Mobile has Surface in their mobility booth at BC Place to highlight and differentiate Samsung phones (such as the Omnia II) created by our partner d’istrict. The devices at the Samsung booth also offer games and a photo manipulation application that allows for framing of the photo and wireless printing, all while being connected to larger displays in the booth.


    NOC*NSFVitality Campus Perhaps you’ve seen the Holland Heineken House in Vancouver? There are  two areas using Surface. Our Dutch partner Zilveren Kruis Achmea worked with Unilever to create an experience for the Vitality Campus there. Our partner Sevensteps created an experience for the NOC*NSF to promote Dutch sport history with the Olympics and you could win event tickets on Surface.

    There were some other private events with Surface, but they were.. well, private. Shh! :)

    Surface at WIND Mobile stores in Canada

    • 0 Comments

    WIND Mobile has deployed 20 Microsoft Surface units throughout their mobile stores in Canada last month. Surface is running the “Power of Conversation” application, a consultative tool which allows customers to compare devices and plans side-by-side, helping to identify the options that work best for them. Information is made available quickly, clearly, and in one layer of engagement. Subsequent versions of the application will focus on the customization of services and devices right off the Surface unit.

    Microsoft Surface Partner Trapeze worked with WIND Mobile and Surface Strategic Partner Stimulant to develop the highly anticipated in store deployment. WIND CCO Chris Robbins was on hand to explain the overall design and feel of the store experience, “The whole idea is to have this fully integrated... The primary goal was to ensure that Surface didn’t become technology for technologies sake... we didn’t want it to be a toy that people just came in and played with because it was here. We wanted it to actually be the center of a meaningful conversation between a potential customer and the Customer Service Representative".
