Surface Pro sells out in Microsoft Online store

Just hours after going on sale, Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet has reportedly sold out in the company’s US online store.

Both the 128GB and 64GB editions of the Surface were shown to be sold out, but remain available at Microsoft’s retail stores across the country.

Whilst announcing the devices had sold out, Microsoft has remained tight-lipped regarding sales figures of the Surface Pro, reportedly refusing to comment.

However, the firm did address the news via a post on its official blog.

"Surface Windows 8 Pro 64GB is available online or from store shelves at all Microsoft retail stores in the U.S. and Canada, at Staples and Best Buy in the United States, and from Best Buy and Future Shop in Canada…. We’re working with our retail partners who are currently out of stock of the 128GB Surface Pro to replenish supplies as quickly as possible."

In addition to addressing the Surface Pro, Microsoft took the opportunity to announce that its Surface RT device would be launched in 13 new countries by February 14th, including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Microsoft recently announced it had shipped 1.25 million units of the Surface RT, with just 680,000 to 750,000 of these coming in the device’s initial two months of launch.
