Microsoft launched the Surface RT devices along with the Windows 8 Public Launch on 26th October last year.There were initial distribution issues and shipping delays for the Surface RT’s ,but after the change in distribution strategy by the software giant helped the tablet to extend its reach.
The big brother of Surface RT i.e the Surface Pro powered by Intel based processor running Wndows 8 Pro version of the operating system was announced with $899 starting price in late November,but there was no announcement about a specific release date of Surface Pro.
But now according to recent reports by Softpedia the tablet would eventually launch on 29th of January,if their source close to redmond campus is to be believed.
The Surface Pro would be available in 2 versions,cheaper one with 64GB of SSD would cost $899,while the highesr end version would cost $999 with 128GB of SSD storage.Both the versions do not include the Touch/Type Cover,so those who want to buy a keyboard for the Surface Pro would have to buy the Tuch/Type Cover separately (around $120).
Though there is no official announcement about the release date,we can expect that to be announced in coming days ,as we already knew that it would be coming in the month of January.
