microsoft surface tablet pre order

Apparently the British release of the Microsoft Surface tablet encountered some issues in contrast to the smooth release of the device in New York. According to a recent theverge.com report, the Surface RT tablet units of Microsoft were not delivered on time with a number of consumers still waiting to get their hands on the devices.

The company had earlier indicated that the tablet will be released into the UK in November 2, although Microsoft later revealed that the announcement was not accurate. However it seems that the devices were shipped only recently and will arrive in the UK in the coming week.

In an apparent move to appease customers who pre-ordered the device, Microsoft reportedly offered a £50 coupon, which is equivalent to $80. Customers will be able to use the coupon for purchases in the online store of the company. Offering the coupon may help pacify a number of UK buyers of the Microsoft Surface tablet. The company has yet to issue a statement on the delay in the delivery of the Surface RT tablet in the UK market.
