Microsoft recently announced that it would be making the move to take its Surface tablet from limited distribution to a more robust solution that would involve third-party retailers. We have already seen in the US that Best Buy and Staples now offer the device and even Australia is getting in on the retail action.
If you happen to be in France and have been waiting to get your hands on the Surface, we have good news for you as the tablet is now on sale at FNAC with a starting price of 589 Euros. We are told that FNAC is similar to Best Buy in the states, but having never been to FNAC ourselves, we will take our tipsters word for it.
With expanded retail presence before the end of the holiday shopping season, Microsoft should be able to move a few more units as this will increase the availability for consumers to get their hands on the goods.
