Surface Pro and Surface RT continue spreading to more markets

Surface Pro and Surface RT continue spreading to more marketsMicrosoft is continuing to expand the availability of its two computer systems: the Surface Pro and Surface RT. The company says new markets are being added "in coming months," starting in "late March."

Microsoft is adding Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, and Taiwan to the twenty-odd countries the ARM-powered Surface RT tablet is already sold in. Surface Pro's first new markets will be Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and the UK. More specific information will be provided closer to the launch date.

The expansion comes after Surface Pro arrived slightly late for its US and Canada release—it was set to arrive 90 days after Surface RT but ultimately debuted more than 100 days after. Demand for the devices is still a relative mystery (despite the unavailability of certain models), and additional markets may only make this picture murkier. Ars has already reviewed the device, and we'll continue to follow how it fares in the market as info comes out.
