Here’s some bad news for those who were planning to pick up the Surface RT 32GB model – well, you can’t, not for a while at least. So if you don’t mind shelling out a little extra, place your order for either of the other 2 models that are still in stock but finishing soon. The Microsoft online store had to turn away many potential customers for the Surface RT 32GB model that comes without the Touch cover, a day after it started taking pre-orders. For those who have managed to successfully pre-order this device, shipping commences within three weeks.
The 32GB version with the Touch cover for $599 and the 64GB one for $699 are still up for grabs, and delivery is expected by October 26. Pre-orders seem to have become the fad of the day in the tech world, as this is a strategy that was used for the Apple iPhone 5 and the 16GB version of Google Nexus 7 tablet. Well, we know for a fact that these 2 devices were a runaway success, so if the same pattern follows, we think Microsoft’s in for a very pleasant surprise!
