Microsoft reveals Surface Pro to launch in coming weeks

16 Jan 2013

Microsoft has let slip that the Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet is set to launch in a matter of weeks.

General manager and self-proclaimed Surface inventor Panos Panaylets announced that the Surface Pro's release is on the horizon on a post to his Twitter profile late on 15 January.

The Surface Pro is the follow up to Microsoft's already released Surface RT tablet. Unlike the RT the Pro will run Microsoft's full Windows 8 operating system.

The tablet will also be powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of memory, a big step up from the Surface RT's Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and 2GB of memory.

The Pro also adds Digital Ink technology, a stylus and an increased number of ports to the Surface series.

The added benefits come at a premium though, with the Surface Pro being set to retail for a hefty $900 in the US, over twice the price of the $400 RT.

There is currently no word on the Pro's exact UK release date or price and at the time of publishing Microsoft had not responded to V3's request for the information.

Check back with V3 later for a full review of the Microsoft Surface Pro.
