Microsoft finally gave a release date for its Surface Pro launch: February 9th. The new tablet, powered by Windows 8, will be available to purchase next month from retailers in the US and Canada.
The Surface Pro runs a full version of Windows 8, meaning it will support existing desktop applications in addition to the new Windows 8-style ones. The Surface Pro is similar to Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet on the exterior, with a 10.6-inch screen and support for Touch and Type Covers, however, it also sports pen support and a Full HD display with an Intel Core i5 processor.
Pricing starts at $899.
I’m hopeful with the better specs of the Surface Pro, it’ll be a better offering than the Surface RT. We’ll just have to wait and see.
