What you need to know

  • Microsoft has announced many new Surface devices.
  • These devices are being subjected to differing regional release dates.
  • Shopping concierge Big Apple Buddy is committed to helping those in regions with later release dates get the products earlier.

If you want a Surface Duo 2, here's the scoop: It's arriving on October 21, 2021, so long as you live in the U.S., UK, France, Germany, Australia, or Canada. If you're not on that particular list of countries, you'll receive the Duo 2... later. How much later is up in the air.

However, Big Apple Buddy has a solution. With its help, those customers outside of Microsoft's favored regions can get a hold of the company's upcoming Surface devices not long after the U.S. receives them.

Big Apple Buddy works with FedEx and DHL to ensure people anywhere can get the devices they want a few days after their initial release, meaning if you're in a region that's not set to get the Surface Laptop Studio or Surface Pro 8 for a while, you know where to turn to.

Take note that there will be a minimum fee of $50 USD per order, dubbed a "service fee" due to the company handling all of the international logistics on your behalf. You can check out more details over on Big Apple Buddy's site.

And on the flip side, if you live in the U.S., you don't have to worry about any of this. Just enjoy instant access to everything Microsoft announced at its 2021 Surface event.
