Microsoft: Surface Pro coming to more markets starting late March

When Microsoft released the Surface Pro, anyone outside North America quickly wondered when they would be able to get their paws on Microsoft’s latest goods.

For those of you looking to get the Pro and you happen to live in Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand or the United Kingdom, the product rollout will kick off in late March. Microsoft has also detailed that the Surface RT will be coming to Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan in the coming months too.

While they are not detailing which markets will see the Pro and RT starting in late March, each local market will announce the availability independently of this announcement. 

The Surface product expansion continues Microsoft’s push of getting its tablet devices into the hands of as many consumers as possible. While the company has not announced official sales figures for the Pro, the device has been hard to find as any available devices have been snatched up quickly.

Hey Brad, can you confirm this "late March" kick off for surface pro here in Australia? Surface blog just said in the coming months.

Yep. I feel like I'm reading a different blog post.

It's just the same old stringing along as before.. "in the coming months". Guess what Microsoft, ALL of the months from now until the end of time are "coming months", this is not a time frame.

Still need prices before I make my mind up between this and a Macbook Pro (Yes I know they serve different purposes!), but it's one or the other!

Guess they worked out any supply issues now. With this sort of timetable going though I think we won't see a v2 of these products till holidays at best, probably to come with windows blue.

Best not to rush having new versions of them anyway. Once per year is about the fastest I think you should go with device releases!

I just hope they come out with a 13/14" version, that would really make me happy =)

Got mine shipped out the first day they became available - makes no sense to buy at bestbuy stores where there is no availability; got It off Microsoft.com/store. Got the RT too when it first came out - both are great.
