Microsoft is hinting that it may produce Surface devices with larger screens in the future. Surface costs £8500 in the UK and is aimed at retail outlets. Matt Champagne told Pocket-Lint that Microsoft was looking into producing Surface installations with 46-inch screens.

The current Surface device has a 30-inch screen. He said that the technology itself is not limited in size but the social experience could limit the size. I would think the big limitation would be cost. If the 30-incher goes for £8500, I would hate to think what a 60-inch unit would sell for.

"We are unlikely to go beyond 50-inches or 60-inches as in doing so changes the dynamic too much", however he didn't rule out the possibility, confirming that "restaurants have approached the company [Microsoft] for bigger devices".
