Surface Pro and Surface RT are coming to more countries Microsoft says

Surface Pro

It seems there are still many countries where customers are eager to get their hands on a Surface Pro or on a Surface RT. Until recently Microsoft was only shipping Surface with Windows 8 Pro in the U.S. and in Canada, but this is about to change.

The software giant has just announced on Thursday in the new Surface Blog, that the tablet will be on sale by the end of March in 7 more countries, including: Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand, China, France, and the United Kingdom.

Surface with Windows RT will also expand new markets in the coming months, including: Mexico, Russia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan, but there isn’t an exact date just yet.

Despite we still haven’t heard Microsoft official sale count from either version of the tablet, it seems that the demand keeps growing and customers are enjoying the device. Let’s just hope the company will be able keep up with the supplies, and we don’t see the same shortage we’ve seen at the launch of the Surface Pro back in January.
