Looks like Microsoft is nearly ready to launch their Surface Pro Tablet PC in several new markets.
The company is expected to launch it in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom before the end of next month. It is further expected to go on sale in Korea, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, and Thailand by the end of June.
Right now it is available in only few markets globally. China was one of the lucky (unlucky?) ones to get it earlier this month. Canada and USA are the only two other markets where it is on sale.
Microsoft was struggling with suppliers to get the units of the 128GB edition which is more in demand. The company stated today that all those issues are now resolved.

Surface RT will launch in Malaysia on April 25th, in Mexico by the end of May and in Korea and Thailand in June.This expansion will result in Surface RT being available in 29 markets. For those that are counting, it’s already available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
