Microsoft Surface 2 tablets bundled with free Skype international calls

Those who purchase the new Microsoft Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 tablet are in for a nice treat. The company is bundling its newest slates with a whole year of free international calls regardless of which model you choose to buy. Who's providing the service? Why, Skype, of course, which is owned by Microsoft, for those who have forgotten. In addition, users of the new Microsoft Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 tablet will be provided with free access to Wi-Fi hotspots. The service is provided by Skype at places like airports and others. Just keep in mind that the free international calls are only valid for conventional phone lines. In other words, you won't be able to call mobile phones for free.
