There seems to be quite a few of these table-tablets popping up as of late. It wasn’t too long ago that we covered both the NEC 52” X-info table tablet and the Samsung SUR40 which runs on the Microsoft Surface. Now we have another tabletop computer by ExoPC who posted a teaser of the EXOdesk “interactive desk” which they will be debuting at CES 2012.
