After many speculations and rumors, we finally have something solid regarding Microsoft Surface Pro. The device will be launched on February 9th and it’ll have a pricing starting at $899, so it’s $400 more expensive than the RT model. Previous rumors placed the launch of the slate this month, but that didn’t come through.


This Windows 8-powred tablet debuts on the date mentioned above in US and Canada and it will reach those areas packing a 10.6 inch high definition display, with an Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and a microSDXC slot for up to 64 GB of extra storage. Microsoft will also offer the public a 128 GB model for $999. Both will include a Surface stylus, but sadly the magnetic Touch Cover and Type Cover are not included in the price and they will cost $120 and $130 respectively.

Microsoft also promised to double the number of markets where the Surface RT is available, launching in 13 new European countries. People rushed to criticize the Surface RT last year when it debuted, calling it a failed product. If we’re to judge from the first numbers, it may be a failure, but the big picture may be different, a year from now. I consider the Surface Pro more prone to fail if you ask me…
