What Happened To The Original Microsoft 'Surface'?

Microsoft did indeed announce another foray into hardware yesterday as rumored, with the introduction of their Surface tablet devices - they looked pretty sweet, actually! Details are a bit skimpy right now, as you might expect, but one thing that struck me was - doesn't Microsoft already have a device named "Surface"?

Yes they do, or at least they did; the original Surface device was a tabletop interface system that has been hanging around for a few years. However, this is now being referred to as PixelSense - I believe PixelSense was the name given to the actual technology used by the (former) Surface device. I still kinda wonder why they re-used the "Surface" name though? This is why I am not in marketing...
