Surface RT tablet heads to Staples today
Microsoft has been complaining ever since its Surface RT tablet launched that the thing holding it back was a poor distribution network. Initially the tablet was only available online and the only retail stores where you could purchase it were Microsoft Stores. The problem was Microsoft Stores were few and far between.
Today Microsoft has announced that is going to be increasing production of the Surface RT tablet. Microsoft also announced that it will be rolling the tablet out to retailers as well. One of the retailers that has stepped up and said that it will be selling the Surface RT tablet is Staples.
As of today, you can go into Staples locations around the country and pick up a 32 GB surface RT tablet for $499. A 32 GB version of the tablet includes the Touch Cover with the keyboard is $599. The 64 GB version of the tablet with the Touch Cover sells for $699. The tablet will be available in other retail locations as well.
