at&t-surface.jpgBallmer may be wanting to sell us a Surface this year, however it looks certain that the US mobile carrier AT&T will have the privilege of stocking the touch-table in branches in New York, San Francisco, Atlanta and San Antonio by April the 17th of this year.

When Microsoft first announced it in May of last year, it was promised to be in T-Mobile, Starwood Hotels, Harrah’s casinos and IGN branches by winter. Judging by the AT&T announcement, I’m guessing the deal with rival network T-Mobile didn’t follow through.

Customers in the four aforementioned branches of AT&T will be able to learn more about the available handsets, and buy ringtones, graphics and videos by dragging them into their phones, possibly.
