Finally! I guess the release date was to be made in January and the actual availability is February 9, 2013 (on line and at the MS Store and both Staples and Best Buy). This is within their specified time of approximately 90 days after the Surface RT release.
Also good news for those around the world:
Bonus:Surface Windows RT is already available for purchase in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and the United States and this announcement will expand its availability to 13 additional markets worldwide. New markets in the coming weeks include:
· Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
We’ve taken a lot of customer and retailer feedback into consideration and are happy to announce the 64 GB Surface Windows RT standalone version, not bundled with a black Touch Cover.
