Steve Jobs may not have endorsed this, but if the Table Connect for iPhone takes off, it could give Microsoft's Surface a run for the money. The only thing holding this gigantic 58-inch working iPhone desk back is the need to hook up a jailbroken iPhone to the "table" via a 30-pin dock connector.
Still, the idea of multitouch on steroids--Cupertino style--should get Apple fanboys salivating to get their mitts on one. According to Engadget, the magic begins when the iPhone is docked and the entire contents of the screen get projected onto the full-HD capacitive LED table via the Table Connect app. It's not just supersized multitouch, it's multiperson touch.
The Web site states that the prototype table is compatible with iOS4, iPhone 4, and iPhone 3Gs, but gives no clue as to pricing. Still, you won't have to countdown too long as more details will be out soon enough in an upcoming video demo launch.
