Microsoft Surface not as superficial as it seems

“Surface” is Microsoft’s intelligent table with built-in sensors and a projecting display that lets you interact with objects you put on it.  AT&T is getting ready to harness Surface at its wireless retail stores.  You’ll be able to put a handset model on the table and see info on coverage, features, and accessories, all without having to deal with a sullen, undertrained salesclone.

We’re hoping that AT&T remembers to include info about hearing aid compatibility and other accessibility features.  And that Surface can be seen easily from a wheelchair, has a large print mode, and a screen reader … and a pony!  Seriously, this is a great opportunity to advance accessible retail.
