256 GB Surface Pro shows up for Japanese market
Until recently, the largest amount of storage you could pick up for a Microsoft Surface Pro has been 128 GB. Now a version of the tablet has surfaced in Japan with 256 GB and a 120,000 YEN price tag (approx. $ 1,200).
The new larger capacity sized Microsoft tablet will also include a pre-installed copy of Office 2013 Home and Business. Only Surface RT tablets have come pre-installed with Microsoft’s productivity suite, so this marks a first for the Pro model.
In addition, the Surface will be meet with a variety of Japan only Touch and Type Covers. The new designs will be produced by artists: Beams, Rodeo Crowns, and Arise.
Are you jealous of our Japanese friends or could you care less for a 256 GB Surface Pro?

About the new covers I could not care less since I am not likely to spend another $100 on a keyboard unrtil the one I have is dead.
I think I'll wait for the surface 2 then
(Gamers on the other hand would be better of with the Pro...but gamers will buy a normal PC)
Now you could not sync it and just fetch everything from the cloud every time but that seems cumbersome.
Good to have so much storage but we need LTE/4G connectivity!!!
When people buy a Computer, they Usually Upgrade the Storage. The Hard Drive / SSD to a Larger one. Microsoft had listened to what the Customers have Been Demanding and Upgraded the SSD to the 256GB Model to make the Customers Demands Feel like they were listened to and answered. If ANYONE AGREES WITH THIS POST, then Comment Here in this Post as Well as Contacting Microsoft either Directly by yourself or by just Copying and Pasting this Post to Microsoft.
