Surface Pro 256GB

Just moments after we posted about a 256 GB Surface Pro showing up on CDW’s website for $1,199, we have received word from a Microsoft source that the company is in fact gearing up to launch the new tablet SKU officially.

At this time we have no further information except that Microsoft has been “prepping for this announcement” and the release of the tablet on Microsoft’s Store should be right around the corner.

The new capacity for the Microsoft’ Surface device would push its maximum SSD size to twice of what Apple’s iPad currently supports. With the Redmond tablet aimed to be a replacement for your laptop, this storage increase has been a long time coming. The new increase should really allow those on the go to focus on what they are doing, rather than worrying about how much storage they have left.

Make sure to stay tuned to Windows Phone Central for the latest breaking news.

Do you think Microsoft’s Surface Pro storage increase is an edge needed?

Updated 4PM ET: Microsoft has notified us that the 256GB Surface Pro will have a "...limited availability...in the U.S. exclusively through the commercial channel and authorized Surface resellers.". So while it is 100% confirmed now, only select locations will have this model available in the coming weeks.
