Microsoft Surface Pro out February 9th
But only in the US and Canada
The higher spec version of Microsoft’s tablet – the Surface Pro – will land in the United States and Canada on February 9th.
The device runs on full-fat Windows 8, and the more powerful Intel Core i5 processor.
Prices are $899 for the 64GB model, which includes a Surface pen. A further $119 will get you the keyboard case, and the specialised Wedge Touch mouse is $69.95.
A large part of the proposition is the laptop/tablet hybrid aspect, however together with the keyboard attachment the price jumps over $1000, which is a fair bit over the top of most tablets.
The original Surface RT is also now available in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, and Portugal.
