Microsoft says Surface Pro will arrive in UK in "the coming months"

Microsoft has confirmed its Surface Pro tablet will be sold in the UK, but hasn't said specifically when or given any pricing details.

The x86 version of the Surface tablet went on sale earlier this month in the US, and has sold out in some stores - although some have suggested that's because of a lack of stock more than overwhelming demand.

Microsoft has kept quiet about when - or if - it would arrive in the UK. Now, Microsoft has confirmed the Surface Pro is coming to these shores "in the coming months".

"We are focused on meeting demand in current markets for Surface Pro and are working super hard to get new inventory into retail but recognise demand exists in other countries as well," Microsoft said. "We are committed to working with our retail partners to ensure we are delivering a great experience in the above mentioned countries for our customers."

Microsoft also revealed it would be extending availability of its ARM-based Surface RT to Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan at the end of March.
