Microsoft Surface launching April 17th... with AT&T

No, Microsoft hasn't suddenly transformed its 30-inch, multi-touch Surface into a big-ass cellphone. It has, however, chosen AT&T to launch the world's first Surface into retail.

Note their use of "the" and not "your" phone in the press release.

Hmm going to use AT&T for it's launch.... I wonder if that means it'll work with the iPhone as well?

Seeing this in action is pretty sweet, well I'm sure much better in person but I wonder if they will have the Consumer version and what will that entail, as well as pricing.
