Good news for those that missed out on the initial stock of the Surface tablet, the US store is now showing them back in stock.
The popular $499 option that comes with 32GB Storage but not a Touch Cover had been missing for some time due to the hurry to snap up devices for pre order.
Having a Surface tablet without that keyboard option seems bonkers to us but many have opted for that device and then added the Touch Cover of their choice to the package even if it costs a little more. If you have been waiting with fire in your eyes for things to return to normal now is your chance to head over to the Microsoft Store and grab one.
While we’re talking availability we should also mention that other regions aren’t having so much luck with their stock levels. We thought we’d check to see how things are looking ‘globally’ and here is what you can expect if outside the US.
- UK - Only the 64GB Surface with Black Touch Cover is available
- Australia - Both 32GB and 64GB options are available but the 32GB tablet only option is out of stock
- Germany - Both 32GB and 64GB options are available but the 32GB tablet only option is out of stock
- Canada - Both 32GB and 64GB options are available but the 32GB tablet only option is out of stock
- France - Both 32GB and 64GB options are available but the 32GB tablet only option is out of stock
From the looks of it the option without the black touch cover has been a sell out in every region with only the UK selling out of the 32GB Surface without touch cover and the 32GB with the black touch cover. Perhaps we’re just a little more conservative about our colour options here.
We certainly hope that stock levels return to normal globally in the run up to the holiday season.
