Storage of Microsoft Surface Pro doubled to 256GB in Japan
Microsoft has been hearing complaints from those customers who bought a Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet. It seems that the 64GB model leaves only 23GB of usable space. The 128GB variant of the slate has only 83GB available. With the Microsoft Surface Pro ready to launch in Japan on June 7th, the Redmond based software studs decided to offer a 256GB model of the tablet in the country.

Microsoft has 86'd the 64GB version of the Microsoft Surface Pro in Japan and will now offer 128GB and 256GB models of the tablet. The price will be ¥99,800 ($975 USD) for the 128GB model and ¥119,800 ($1170 USD) for the 256GB variant. Another change in Japan is that Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Business, which in the U.S. can be found in the Microsoft Surface RT and not the Surface Pro, is bundled with the latter in Japan. And there are also exclusive Touch Covers available in the country.

By the way, for the record, the 256GB model of the tablet has about 200GB of usable space.
