On Friday, it was revealed that the 256GB and 512GB storage models of the Surface Pro 2 were pushed from October 22 to December 15. The 64GB and 128GB versions will be released on October 26. Los Angeles Industry Analyst Paul Mueller tells us this is both good and bad news for Microsoft.
"I hear one of the main reasons for the delay is because of the demand. This isn't hype; there really is demand here. The bad news is that many consumers will be disappointed with Microsoft. Many who are in the rush for a Windows 8.1 tablet may turn to the Sony Tap 11 tablet instead."
The new Surface Pro features an improved kickstand, a better (Intel Haswell) processor, and better battery life. The original Surface Pro, which we still think is one of the best technology devices of the year, was criticized for its battery life, clunky Windows 8 operating system, and lack of storage options. There was also a limited amount of available units for a month after its initial release in February of this year.
