Microsoft offers updated statement regarding Surface Pro availability in US and Canada Written by Ron on February 13, 2013 - 08:00AM
The Surface Pro, powered by Windows 8 Pro, was officially launched online at MicrosoftStore.com, as well as BestBuy and Staples on Febryary 9th, and within a few hours, the 128GB model of the Surface Pro was already sold out at Microsoft's online store. Microsoft revealed that it was working to replenish supplies but now has offered a bit more detail on when we can see a Surface Pro device available for purchase in stores again.
"In the U.S., we are shipping additional units of the 64GB SKU to Best Buy, Staples and Microsoft Store now. We are shipping 128GB SKU later this week to retailers, with some units available by the end of the week. Our priority (and that of our retail partners) is to fulfill orders from customers who made a reservation first. Canada is following a similar timeline but may take an extra few days to start arriving," Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
So there you have it. In the US, expect to see the 64GB Surface Pro in the next day or so, and 128GB models by the end of the week. If you are in Canada and hoping to snag a Surface Pro, you may be waiting a bit longer.
