First shipment of 32 GB Surface RT tablets sell out, now on 3 weeks back order


It seems the prophets of doom may have been wrong about demand for the Microsoft Surface, as the cheapest of the 3 packages have now sold out on pre-order, and have gone on back order.

The $499 tablet, sold without the touch cover, is now on 3 weeks back order (which presumably means about 2 weeks after the other Surface tablets are delivered).

Microsoft is rumoured to have ordered up to 5 million Surface tablets for Q4 2012, so hopefully this level of interest will continue and help make the RT platform a success.

Thanks Kamara for the tip.
