Surface lands in Taiwan; Microsoft set on global tablet expansion

Many of us have been enjoying Microsoft’s latest tablets – the Surface RT and Surface Pro, but today’s announcement that the tablet has just launched in Taiwan reminds us that the product isn’t exactly global. Just earlier this year, the Surface RT became available in 13 additional including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland

Taiwanese fans of the Microsoft product can now pick up the device at local electronic chains, Tsann Kuen Enterprise Co. and Fayaque Co. The Surface RT 32 GB and 64 GB will be priced at NT$10,888 (US $364) and NT $13,888, respectively. Microsoft’s Surface Pro will start at NT$24,888 for the 64 GB version and NT$27,888 for the 128 GB version.

The device is currently struggling to make its mark in current countries and as Microsoft continues price cuts and its global expansion of the tablet, we hope to see good things.

Are any of our Taiwanese fans excited to purchase a Surface device now?
