Microsoft Surface and Onsite Computer Services

August 12, 2009

Today Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans received the first request for information regarding the Microsoft Surface computer platform.  Last month Microsoft announced at the Worldwide Partner Conference 2009 in New Orleans the Microsoft Surface Partner Program, an extension of the Microsoft Partner Network, and the QuickStart Web site.

Microsoft Surface is a ground-breaking computing platform that responds to multi-touch, natural hand gestures and objects placed on the display, providing effortless interaction with information and digital content in an intuitive and collaborative way. Surface is presently available for commercial purchase in 14 markets, and many customers have either deployed or are piloting the platform.

To kick off the new program, the Microsoft Surface team also is holding The Touch First Microsoft Surface Developer Contest, which challenges new and existing partners to create a next-generation application on the platform. The contest is open to all Microsoft Partner Network registered partners located in one of the 14 markets where Microsoft Surface is available.
Partners like Onsite Computer Services must design an application built on Microsoft Surface and include one additional product beyond Windows Presentation Foundation and Windows. All entries must also apply to one of these six verticals: automotive, retail, healthcare, financial, hospitality or public sector.

To submit an entry, partners must submit video and a description of the application on a dedicated Facebook page. Winners are then selected by the Microsoft Surface team and will be announced at PDC in October and awarded a Microsoft Surface unit.

Is your business one of the six verticals: automotive, retail, healthcare, financial, hospitality or public sector?  Call Onsite Computer today to get the entire story on Microsoft Surface and your business.
