Microsoft Surface to get a consumer version in 2011?

Posted on Monday, March 31 2008 @ 01:15:27 CEST by

Tom Gibbons, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft's Specialized Devices and Applications Group, told Fortune during an interview that a consumer version of the Microsoft Surface tabletop computer may be available by 2011:
"In the three-year time window, we absolutely see how to get there," Gibbons told Fortune. "If we can beat that, we'll try to beat that."

But before it can focus on the home market, Microsoft still needs to work on satisfying the initial customers for the product. When it announced Surface in May, Microsoft was aiming to have its initial customers with products in hand by years' end. By the fall, though, CNET News.com reported that Microsoft was unlikely to meet its goal.

"We're running a couple of months later than I'd like with our deployments, Gibbons said in the Fortune interview. "While I was hoping we'd have something out now, we'll definitely have something out in the next couple of months."
