That price, however, is just for the tablet alone. If you want to get your hands on the keyboard, you’re going to have to cough up an extra £100 and £110 for one with moving keys.
The £399 is for the 32GB version. There are only two versions, 32GB and 64GB. This is the same price as the iPhone maker’s iPad 16GB W-Fi-only version. This means you get more bang for the buck with more storage. If you’re looking to get your hands on the 64GB version, expect to cough up more.
We’re happy the Microsoft Surface tablet will be landing in UK shops. Sadly, there’s still no word when to expect it. We’re hoping soon.
The Surface tablet will be available in the US on the 26th of October. However, like most devices, expect to wait longer for the arrival of this Windows 8-powered tablet in the UK.
Microsoft still hasn’t revealed how much the Surface Pro will cost, but don’t expect it to be the same price as the RT version. Expect it to be significantly more expensive compared to the RT version.
At 9am PDT today, according to Microsoft, the tablet will be available in a “special limited-quantity pre-order”. This is 5pm UK time. Currently, if you hit the pre-order button, it will direct you to a blank page. We’re hoping this isn’t so in an hour’s time.
At £399, do you think the 32GB version of the Surface tablet will sell well, or do you think there’s still no stopping the iPad? Share your opinion through a comment on our Facebook page.
