Microsoft extends the reach of its Surface Pro tablet

Microsoft's Surface RT and Surface Pro aren't exactly lighting up the sales charts, but that isn't stopping the software giant from expanding the latter's reach into new markets. Microsoft launched the Surface Pro (in 64GB and 128GB capacities) in the U.S. earlier this year, and Japanese buyers will now getting the opportunity to sample Microsoft's home-brewed tablet aimed at business users.
 
Starting June 8, potential customers in Japan will be able to purchase the familiar 64GB and 128GB Surface Pro models. In addition, a new 256GB SKU has been added to the mix and will be available for 119,800 yen ($1,175) -- this wouldn't be the first time that a company released a higher capacity model late in the a product's life cycle to extend its life a bit.

 
Microsoft is also being especially generous to Japanese customers by throwing in Office 2013 for free with all SKUs -- U.S. customers must purchase an Office 2013 license separately.

I just realized it...Windows 8, its color scheme, form factor and aspect ratio (16:9) are made for Asians!!!!

LOL...joking, but seriously, that 256G Model would be a great laptop/ultrabook replacement all over Latin America...
