Microsoft will soon be releasing its product called Surface. It’s a computer designed to be an interactive table. Yes, a table, not a tablet or a compact device for the pocket. Of course it will feature the latest technologies in touch screens, web compatiblity and multimedia.

The price tag is estimated to be a whopping $10,000 and it’s not actually marketted to indiviual consumers but to mostly businesses like hotels, restauruants and big , rich corporations.

So is this what the public needs? In their commercials, it’s also emphasized that it’s probably useful to families in their living rooms as an entertainment device. Is it really worth it?

Well, we still don’t know if Microsoft Surface’s flashy new technology will be as successful as the iPhone but there may be a chance though with a price tag like that, it might be better to get 20 iPhones instead.
