No, we won’t be seeing cell phones equipped with Microsoft’s touch-screen technology. Instead, the Surface table will be showcased in AT&T stores to help provide customers with additional information regarding the cell phones on sale at the store. Surface will be available in 22 stores on April 17 and is programmed to support up to eight AT&T phones. Customers simply need to place one of the demo phones onto Surface and the table will display relevant information regarding the phone. This allows the customer to interact with the table and learn about the features and specs of the phone in question. Think of it like an addition to the sales team.
