Microsoft expands availability of Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface Pro
"We are eager to see people and businesses in more countries get a chance to experience this new category of devices. Surface is the best of a tablet and a PC."-Panos Panay, corporate vice president, Microsoft Surface
Microsoft has announced that it will start expanding the availability of its Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets to other countries around the world. The Microsoft Surface RT, which is an ARM supported slate that competes with traditional tablets like the Apple iPad and Android models, will soon be found in Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan. Two weeks ago, Microsoft expanded the availability of the tablet by putting it on sale in 13 other countries.

The Redmond based manufacturer is also planning on making its Microsoft Surface Pro available in more countries world-wide. The locations include Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The Microsoft Surface Pro is an Intel powered tablet that allows you to use your legacy apps from the desktop box in your office, and is designed for business users. The tablet recently enjoyed a strong launch in the U.S.

The Microsoft Surface RT and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets should both be rolling out in the above mentioned countries sometime later this month.

Takes one to know one.

You can still get more work done on a Surface RT than you can on an iPad.

Not to mention that now it's possible to run .exe applications on it. Can the iPad do that?

i guess u only watch porns on Retine display of Ipad4 so u can see more of the fun stuff clearly othervise iPad is geniune toy with lack of productivity which was the purpose of creating tablets. games watching movies were not the real purpose of tabs
