Designed to do away with the need for a traditional mouse and keyboard, users can instead use their fingers to operate the computer. Also designed to interact with mobile phones placed on the surface, Microsoft says it will initially sell the unit to corporate customers. Multi-touch interfaces have been in focus recently, especially with the Apple iPhone featuring one.
