New Surface Pro model coming next week

When it comes to Microsoft's Surface and Surface Pro tablets, the Redmond, Washington-based company hasn't exactly had a hit on its hands. One might say that a lack of storage space isn't the primary reason for consumer's apprehension of Surface, but that isn't stopping Microsoft from making available an even more expensive version for the U.S. market.
According to Windows Phone Central, the 256GB Microsoft Surface Pro that made its way to Japan in late May will wind up on our shores next week. The price of entry for the new model is a hefty $1,199 at CDW.

According to Windows Phone Central, the increase in storage capacity is the only change this time around, so those hoping to score a Surface Pro with Haswell power will have to wait until a refresh comes along.
