Back in March, Microsoft said its Surface Pro tablet would be released in Australia "in the coming months". We now have a slightly firmer commitment: before the end of May.
A post on the Surface blog confirms that Australia will be one of 19 countries to see the Surface Pro next month (New Zealand is also on the list), with a further five to follow in June. Pricing for the Surface RT in Australia was similar to that of the US (allowing for the fact we have to pay GST). If that pattern continues, expect the entry-level 64GB Surface Pro to cost around $999, and the 128GB version to be $1099.
