One Microsoft Store expects the tablet Jan 26
The Microsoft Surface RT tablet has been on the market for a few months, and so far hasn't put up big sales numbers. While Surface RT is aimed at consumers and isn’t backwards compatible with the colossal Windows application library, Microsoft will also be launching the Surface Pro tablet which runs the more business-friendly Windows 8 operating system.
There've been plenty of hints dropped by Microsoft on when people interested in the Surface Pro will be able to buy the tablet, but nothing firm. As close as Microsoft has come to a firm launch date has been the month of January. With January here many businesses are wondering when specifically they can get their hands on the tablet.
While a specific launch date remains unannounced,
reports that calls to a number of Microsoft Stores have come up with a consensus of January 26. January 26 would be roughly 90 days after the launch of the Surface RT tablet, which would go along with other rumors for the tablet’s launch.
We already know that the
tablet will be far from cheap with the 64 GB version selling for $899 and 128 GB version selling for $999. The tablet uses an Intel
processor, has a 10.6-inch screen with full HD resolution, and has a Mini DisplayPort for an external monitor.

Two friends of mine and I have been waiting for the Pro since we first heard about it 6~ months ago.
Not sure why everyone saying it's pricey. Compared to other tablets like the iPad and surfaceRT the Pro is a great deal, pay a little more and get a lot more. Maybe it's a little pricey compared to cheap notebooks or cheap ultra books but you get a tablet form factor and a touch screen. It doesn't have a lot of storage but someone like me isn't expecting to travel with every piece of data I own hats what an external hdd is for.
We see the value in the pro and you can count that as 3 sales.
