    Ok that is one step (available in more countries)! Now the step I (and many more) am waiting for: RELEASE the Surface Pro globally!!! It would be nice if we could buy it before the new model is released (which we probably also won’t get for a year….)

      What you say makes little sense. If the Surface RT took 3 months to be released in most countries (not exactly globally but 18 countries its pretty good) why in the world would the pro version take as long as you say to be released to the same markets?
