Microsoft has quietly ended sales of its year old Windows 8.1 Surface Pro 2 tablet. The 10.1 inch device was first launched alongside the Windows 8.1 RT-based Surface 2, which is still available for sale.
Neowin reports they confirmed the end of Surface Pro 2 sales with an online Microsoft Store sales rep. While it's possible that a few online retailers and brick-and-mortar stores might have some Surface Pro 2 units still available for sale, the fact that Microsoft has ended its availability shows that the tablet has reached the end of its sales life.
As we mentioned, the Surface 2 is still on sale as well as the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 that debuted in June. Microsoft seems pleased with the sales of the Surface Pro 3 but has yet to offer any concrete sales numbers for the tablet. It's highly likely that the company won't release any new Surface tablets until the official launch of Windows 10, which will happen sometime in 2015. How do you feel about Microsoft retiring the Surface Pro 2?
