Pre-order is open for Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2!

Yesterday was an amazing day as we finally got to unveil Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. We had a great event in New York (see the full keynote here) and the reaction to what’s coming has been awesome. To those of you who have posted, tweeted, and otherwise joined in – thank you!

This morning we began taking pre-orders via www.MicrosoftStore.com, Microsoft Stores, and through select retailers in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. Learn more about the new devices and accessories as well as how to pre-order in your market at www.Surface.com/pre-order.

Along with the pre-order, I also want to recall the great offers from Skype and SkyDrive that are included to help you get the most from your new Surface. When you purchase (either through pre-order or after October 22nd) you’ll receive free Skype calling to land lines in more than 60 countries for one year, unlimited Skype WiFi on your Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 at more than 2 million hot spots worldwide for one year, and 200 GB of free SkyDrive storage for two years.
