After Microsoft partnered Samsung the product that was introduced was Samsung Sliding Slate, a tablet equipped with Windows 7 Home Premium and powered by the Intel Atom processor. It featured in our top 5 Windows 7 tablets list too. Now, the duo has come up with the modified version of 40-inch Full HD LCD, Samsung SUR 40. a large format display (LFD) monitor.
The collaborative HD LCD can be used horizontally as a table, mounted vertically on a wall or embedded in other fixtures. It incorporates Microsoft’s second-generation platform Surface 2.0 software and touch technology and is powered by an AMD-based Windows 7 machine.
It no longer requires cameras underneath the table for recognizing finger-touches. Instead, it makes use of PixelSense technology that allows more than 50 simultaneous touch-points on the surface.
It can not only recognize fingers and hands, but also other objects placed on the screen since it supports up to 50 points of contact at one time. Samsung SUR 40 features a thin, 4-inch profile and a large screen display, covered with the Gorilla Glass. The glass is capable of protecting the device from external shocks and liquid ingress.
Samsung SUR 40 connects to a wide range of devices such as printers, cameras and bar code scanners through Wi-Fi (much supported these days), Ethernet and standard Bluetooth connections. Besides, it holds promises to deliver a rich sound experience.
