Surface RT Tablet

As was being speculated for a while, Microsoft has finally acted on its agenda to start selling the Surface RT Tablet through its non-Microsoft network of retailers; something that was not supposed to have happened till the start of the New Year. Best Buy and Staples are going to be the first two online retailers that are going to start selling them. In fact three versions of the tablet are already up on the Best Buy website. These are the 32 GB without keyboard, the 32 GB with black touch cover, and a 64 GB with black touch cover. So far as pricing is concerned, they are available at the same price of $499 to $699. There is however no further details accessible on the availability of colors or accessories, however it can be assumed that they are going to be available.

Microsoft has been reportedly increasing the production of the Surface RT due to growing demand and trying to network with retailers to push their device through. This is music to the ears of those who are interested in the tablet and yet cannot see one in action in person because they don’t live near a Microsoft store.

Some cynics will argue that the push by Microsoft and their change of retail sales stance was more to do with the fact that the Surface was not selling that well and they needed to do something about that. Since Microsoft has continuously refused divulging actual sales figures, all we can do at this time is wait, watch and speculate.
