Microsoft Surface: Australian Prices And Release Date Announced

I know you’ve been hanging out for Surface news. Believe me, so have we. Today Microsoft Australia announced how much you can expect to pay for its new tablet, where you can buy it from, and more importantly, when you can preorder.

Microsoft will have three different Surface versions available. They all run Windows RT, however one will just be a 32GB version for $559, one will be a 32GB version bundled with a black Touch Cover for $679 and a 64GB version with a black Touch Cover will set you back $789.

Touch Covers cost $139.99 separately, or you can pick up a nifty Type Cover for $149.99.

YOu won’t be able to buy the Surface in stores, unfortunately. As we’ve suspected for a while, you’ll be able to grab the Surface online at Surface.com. Head over there now for more pre-order information. Pre-orders are limited, and the device goes on sale on October 26.

So, now we know the price, are you getting one?

Stay tuned for updates.
