Some people in Virginia are voting on Microsoft's Surface tablet
Just two weeks after launch and Microsoft's Surface RT tablet is already set to play a small part in determining whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney wins the U.S. presidential election.
The tablet has been fitted with the ‘LiveBallot’ app so users can mark and print out their ballot papers.
The company is using Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud platform to collect the ballot information and plans to roll out more tablets to other locations if this trial proves to be successful. That said, the firm added that any future deployments will be of the Surface tablets running Windows 8 Pro (the version supporting Intel chips).
