Microsoft Surface tablets shipping in UK, delivered with no prior confirmation

Consumers who placed an order for a Microsoft Surface RT tablet are beginning to receive the product, according to reports coming in from UK-based readers. The Windows RT tablet has been available for order for a while now, but has been hit with system errors that misled consumers in believing their order was delayed.

Microsoft offered a £50 promotional code for those who pre-ordered the Surface as a small apology for the inconvenience caused by the emails that were sent in error, but it's more positive to see deliveries heading out before the month is up. Windows Phone Central reader Shaun noted that he receive no prior delivery confirmation / notification, so proceed onwards with caution when leaving the residence unattended.

Have you received your Surface in the UK? Do let us know in the comments. If you haven't already placed your order, be sure to head on over to the Surface website as all three models are back in stock.

Thanks, Shaun, for the heads up and photo!
