Microsoft Surface RT 64 GB version to be sold without Touch Cover for $599

Earlier today, Microsoft announced that the Surface Pro tablet, which runs Windows 8 Pro, would finally be available for purchase on February 9. However, buried in Microsoft's announcement was word that the previously launched Surface tablet with Windows RT would be getting a small but significant change.

The 64 GB version of the Surface with Windows RT tablet was previously sold for $699 and included the Touch Cover accessory. Today, Microsoft announced that the same tablet would now be available without the Touch Cover for $599. 

At the moment, this new option of Surface with Windows RT does not appear to be on sale on the Microsoft Store website, although it will likely be available in the very near future.
