Microsoft Surface 2 launched

It’s finally here. Microsoft has launched the new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 devices, along with new accessories to go along with them. You can head over to your local Microsoft retail store, visit the online Microsoft Store, or select third-party retailer to snag yourself a brand new Surface device.

“Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are the most productive tablets on the planet, and they each benefit from significant updates, including improvements to processing power and battery life, display and camera resolution, and the kickstand – now featuring a second, wider angle so it’s more comfortable to use Surface on your lap or at your desk. Enhancements in Windows 8.1 RT and Windows 8.1 Pro make Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 even more powerful and customizable,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.

The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 will launch in 21 initial markets, which include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. China will see the new Surface devices in early November.

The Surface 2 starts at $449 for the 32GB model. The Surface Pro 2 starts at $899 for the 64GB model. The accessories that will also be available for purchase now include the Type Cover 2, Touch Cover 2, Wireless Adapter for Typing Covers, and Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition. Coming early next year will be the Power Cover, Docking Station, and Car Charger with USB.

Head over to the online Microsoft Store to purchase your Surface 2 device.
