Microsoft will start selling the Surface RT, the first version of the tablet that was released on October 26, in a total of 13 new markets, which is more than double the number of countries where the device is up for grabs right now.
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland will all get the Surface RT in the “coming weeks,” Microsoft said in a press statement.
“The response to Surface has been exciting to see,” said Panos Panay, general manager, Microsoft Surface. “We’re thrilled to continue growing the Surface family with the availability of Surface Windows 8 Pro on Feb. 9 and by increasing the number of places customers can experience Surface firsthand.”
Pricing for these markets is yet to be released, but in the United States, the most affordable model is sold for $499 (€380) and comes with 32 GB of storage space and without a Touch Cover.
