Microsoft pulling stock of Surface Pro 2 from physical stores

It has been roughly two weeks since the release of the well-received Surface Pro 3. As the successor of the Pro 2, many wondered whether Microsoft would keep the Pro 2 as part of its tablet device line-up. 

According to Windows Phone Central, Microsoft Stores are sending all or most of their stock of Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 2 accessories back to Microsoft. The device will continue to be stocked in limited numbers at certain stores, but will mainly be used for customer issues or replacements. While this is currently just isolated to Microsoft Stores, it is not indicative of what might be occurring at other retail chains. 

Those who would like to still get their hands on the Surface Pro 2 will be happy to know that it can still be ordered from the Microsoft Store website. Currently, the site has stock of all the models with the exception of the 64GB unit.

Although Microsoft seems to be putting the Surface Pro 3 at the forefront of its tablet offerings, with its recent acquisition of Nokia, it could introduce another option, the successor to the Lumia 2520, later this year.
