    Hopefully Surface Pro 2 will be available in all those countries at launch.

      Unlikely! :( The earliest we are likely to get even a definitive rumour of a project version 2 of the Surface is probably October!

        October 2014 – FTFY

        What I mean was that Surface 2 will be available in all of these markets when the product launches, whenever that might be.
        So if Surface 2 launches in October, it will not only be available in USA, but in all of the markets mentioned above.

    My predictions for the Surface Pro launch date where correct.
    I’ll probably wait for the next Surface since the Pro is now an almost year old device…

      And then you gotta wait another year for it to land in your Country.
      It is a viscious cycle

    I think everybody has a bit of the truth. I think that we will here more about the surface pro 2 after the summer. It won’t be available in other countries until spring 2014. Surface pro now could have come more sooner all over the world, but production limits limits Microsoft having to enforce a priority list.They won’t get as efficient as apple is now for a year or two perhaps. But then we’re talking about amazing new technology and things have to be developped from the ground up, just like the beginnings of apple or perhaps Tesla.

    I can’t wait for it to be released in Hong Kong, not because I don’t have one already (Excellent little Laplet BTW) but so that I can replace the damned pen; which because of a catastrophic design flaw in the Surface with regards to secure storage, was lost within a week.

    Is India a banned state for Microsoft !! this is sad and am getting repulsed to the idea that even after so many months of wating they can’t put their eggs in any basket and are useless in marketing.
    Marketing heads and team should GO !!!
