Microsoft Malaysia has said Surface Pro should make its local entry sometime at the end of the year
While there still no word on Surface Pro, the long-awaited Microsoft Surface RT however - which was released in the United States October last year - is finally available to the local market.
Carlos Lacerda, the Managing Director of Microsoft Malaysia, said that Microsoft Malaysia is incredibly thrilled for Malaysians to experience the Surface brand device, starting with Surface RT.
"It is a tablet with laptop capabilities." He continued."It will change the way people play and work on an electronic device."
Surface RT will be made available through selected stores nationwide in three participating retail partners: Challenger Malaysia, Harvey Norman, and Thunder Match Technology.
The Surface RT includes a Touch Cover that provides a super-thin and spill-resistant keyboard in various colours, an ultra-light durable casing, an integrated kickstand for the display, SkyDrive cloud connectivity, games, a microSDXC card slot for additional storage, Office Home & Student 2013 and so forth.
It is meant to last up to 8 hours of battery life, which will attract people who play and work on the go.
