Surface Pro 2 tablet with high capacity (256GB or 512GB) is not going to be available until December 15

Due to the short supply, high capacity, and more expensive, models of the Surface Pro 2 tablet will not reach buyers who preordered them for two more months. They have been available for pre-order from September 24. Lower capacity tablets (64GB and 128GB) will ship, as promised, by October 21 and October 25 respectively.

Microsoft is planning to launch the new models of its popular tablet Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 on October 22. While available for preorder since last month, the exact shipping times for certain models that are available online have been changing.

While higher capacity Surface Pro2 will not be available until December 15, both models of the Surface 2 will be available for shipment on October 25. Surface 2 comes in two capacity models: 32GB and 64GB.

Microsoft is timing the release of the new Surface Pro 2 with the release of the big update to the Windows - Windows 8.1.

The Surface Pro 2 model retained the original look and the size of the Surface Pro, as well as its popular snap-on keyboard, but it now comes with better battery life and Haswell processor.

The Surface 2 runs on Windows RT and its price for the lower capacity models starts at $449.  The Surface Pro 2, the same as the original model of Pro, starts at $899. With upgraded RAM to 8GB, and the SSD storage upgraded to a 512GB, the Surface Pro 2 will cost  $1,799.
