“The product listed below will now be available on 02 November 2012.”
For US customers who were late in pre-ordering the device, they will have to wait longer to get their hands on the Surface tablet. It’s US pre-order stock consisting of the 32GB and 64GB variants have now been listed as “sold out”.
