Microsoft to ship orders of 128GB Surface Pro in 2-3 weeks

Microsoft has confirmed that it will start shipping the online orders for the sold-out 128 GB Surface Pro within two to three weeks. US customers can place an order through the online Microsoft Store and expect to receive the device early next month.

The announcement came via a 15 February blog post, in which the company also provided more information for those wanting to 'reserve' forthcoming stocks of the tablet/PC hybrid. Prior to this, the company refused to make any statement regarding whether or not buyers would have that option.

"Inventory levels are increasing and many Best Buy stores have Surface Pro units for sale in store. If the store does not have stock, you can reserve a Surface Pro (64GB and 128GB)," the Surface Team wrote, adding that US customers can also order the tablet from Best Buy and Staples.

As for Canadian buyers, only the 64GB variant of the device is available so far, though Microsoft has said it will soon provide details about the availability of the 128GB version in Canada. The company has yet to give any indication as to when customers in other parts of the world can expect to get their hands on the Surface Pro.

"[We] continue to work around the clock to meet that demand with production and get new inventory into retail," Microsoft said.
