Microsofts Surface Pro tablet will go on sale in the UK starting next week, but it looks like the availability of the Windows 8 Pro device will be pretty limited. The tablet will only be on sale via the UK Microsoft Store website and will not be sold in any retail stores in that territory, at least for now.
According to Engadget, the price for the 64 GB Surface Pro will be £719 , and UK residents will have to spend £799 for the 128 GB version. The prices dont include the optional Touch and Type Covers, which already cost £99 and £109, respectively.
The Surface Pro is currently available in in the U.S., Canada and China, It will go on sale in Hong Kong on Friday, and the tablet is supposed to be made available for sale by the end of May in a bunch of other countries and territories, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
By the end of June, the tablet should add Korea, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, and Thailand to that list of countries and territories, joining its previously launched Surface RT tablet.
