Microsoft's Surface tablet, which runs Windows RT, has been featured in an episode of NCIS: LA. The device was announced and released earlier this month, and has been shipped to a number of consumers who placed pre-orders.

We've witnessed the start of Microsoft's marketing campaign for its tablet hardware with graffiti, energetic videos, and the opening of Surface Experience Centres. In the NCIS episode, the Surface tablet is used to show off the lock screen, photo unlock functionality, as well as the 'click in' with Touch Cover.
