Microsoft today launched the new Surface Pro with a new kickstand, streamlined design, a new pen, and improved specs. The device isn’t just a minor spec bump as many expected it to be — instead, it includes 800 enhancements which is a huge upgrade. But a big problem with previous Surface launches has been their availability. Microsoft usually launches new devices only in the United States, but that has started to change with the recently introduced Surface Laptop.
Today, Microsoft announced that the new Surface Pro will also have a global launch. The device will be available in 25 markets — including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Span, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK and the United States.
The new Surface Pro starts at $799 — but that doesn’t come with a Surface Pen or the type covers, so you’ll have to spend at least $930 if you want the full bundle. The Surface Pro and the new Surface Pro Signature Type Covers will be available for pre-order later today in select markets on the Microsoft Store, BestBuy.com, and JD.com. The Surface Pen, on the other hand, will be available in the “coming weeks.”
