Microsoft has made available pre-orders (starting at 12PM ET) on its US Online Store the Surface RT tablet, and pricing is as follows:
- Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB: $499
- Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB with Black Touch Cover: $599
- Surface with Windows RT, 64 GB with Black Touch Cover: $699
- Surface Touch Cover (white, red, black, cyan, or pink): $120
- Surface Type Cover: $130
You can pre-order in the US from today, and it will go on sale in Microsoft Stores on October 26th. No details yet on International availability, but given the recent Asus introduction video from Three, it will likely be the same timescales.
Microsoft has reportedly ordered up to 5 million Surface tablets (we’re assuming this is RT since the Pro isn’t shipping for another 3 months) according to the Wall Street Journal, which is a relatively cautious figure for one of its computing devices, but a positive sign for a brand new tablet on a brand new platform.
