Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet

Following the revelation by Microsoft last October on the 12GB required storage for the OS and pre-installed applications for the Surface RT tablet, a controversy emerged since it only left around 20GB of free storage for users who purchased the 32GB model of the Microsoft Surface tablet. An update on the Surface.com website later indicated that only 16GB and 45GB of free storage will be available on the 32GB and 64GB models of the device respectively after all the software including the OS and Office application are installed.

For the moment, no updates were available on the website that showed the available storage space for the new Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet that uses the Windows 8. The upcoming tablet will be launched in North America by February 9. However, Softpedia.com supposedly received a Microsoft statement that showed the available storage space for the upcoming device.

The statement indicated that the upcoming 128GB model of the device will only have 83GB of available storage after all the software and OS are considered. On the other hand, the 64GB model will have around 23GB of available space. The 128GB and 64GB models of the Surface tablet will be sold at $999 and $899 respectively.

The company also indicated that aside from the 7GB SkyDrive storage, microSDXC memory card slot that can support a maximum of 64GB card, and USB 3.0 port that allows external drives to be linked to the device, users can also use a bootable USB and delete the recovery partition to increase the available storage on the Surface Pro.
