Microsoft rolling out Surface tablets to employees?


Some months ago Microsoft announced that they will be giving Surface tablets to all 90,000 full-time Microsoft employees.

It seems that that day has finally come, as Jeff Wilcox, senior software developer at Microsoft, has tweeted that Surface for employees is “go!”

Microsoft has recently announced that they have increased production of the Surface tablet, and it may be this loosening of supply which is making the internal roll-out possible.  It is not clear if the roll-out will initially be confined to US only, or will be world-wide.

Those Microsoft employees hoping for an early Christmas present by selling the device on will be disappointed to know the terms and conditions prevent the sale of the gift.

Hopefully the roll-out will be associated with an influx of high quality applications to the Windows 8 store as talented developers get their hands on the tablet.
