As we mentioned earlier today, Verizon Wireless has started selling their first Windows Phone 8 devices in their stores today. However, some stores have also built a demo display that focuses on the Surface tablet from Microsoft.
The WPCentral.com forums has a message from one of its readers who walked into his local Verizon store today and took the picture above with the working Surface demo display. The reader, jrj2013, stated, " ... the manager said he had set it up this AM and that VZW will be selling them soon."
Currently, the only retail stores that are selling the Surface tablet in the US are Microsoft's own stores. If Verizon starts selling the Surface, it's likely it will be the same one that Microsoft offers rather than one that also links up to Verizon's LTE network.
It's also likely that we will see the Surface show up in more retail store locations over the next several months. An anonymous Neowin tipster recently told us that Best Buy would start selling the Surface in January. It's possible that retailers are waiting for the Windows 8 Pro-Intel version of the tablet to go on sale before offering the Surface to its customers.
