After many delays, Microsoft, as promised, has released its Surface Pro tablet in Canada, which runs the full version of Windows 8, unlike the Surface RT.
The Surface Pro released in Canada on Saturday, Feb. 9 and the tablet will cost $899 and $999 for the 64GB and 128GB versions, respectively.
"We are thrilled to expand the Surface family with the release of Surface Pro," said Panos Panay, corporate vice president, Microsoft Surface. "The launch of Surface Pro marks a pivotal moment for customers who can now do more with their machines than ever before. Within the Surface family, customers will be able to choose a combination of devices that best suit their needs: Surface Pro, which provides the power and performance of a laptop in a tablet package, or Surface RT, which offers the convenience of a tablet with some laptop capabilities so you can get things done."
The 10.6-inch Surface Pro tablet, which comes with a stylus in tow, can be purchased from the Microsoft online store. Currently, both the versions of the tablet are in stock unlike its U.S. counterpart.
Additionally, if you purchase the Office 365 Home Premium with the Surface Pro, Microsoft is offering $20 and $50 discounts on a one-year and two-year subscriptions, respectively. However, this offer is for a limited period only.
If you want to purchase the Touch or Type Covers, be prepared to shell out $120 or $130 for the same.
With the inventory of the Surface Pro believed to be low, hurry up and grab the tablet before stocks run out.
