Announcement comes on eve of Surface Pro US retail sales

Three months after its US release, Microsoft has announced availability of the Surface RT tablet for some other countries. On February 14, the device will launch in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. No announcement has been made regarding the Surface Pro anywhere else than North America.

Panos Panay, corporate vice president of Microsoft Surface, said in a statement that "we are thrilled to expand the Surface family with the release of Surface Pro. The launch of Surface Pro marks a pivotal moment for customers who can now do more with their machines than ever before."

The Surface RT was originally launched in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, England, and the US on October 26. The Surface Pro is scheduled to be available at retail this weekend, but the blizzard currently affecting the east coast cancelled the New York City launch event.
