Posted by at 2:02 pm on January 22, 2013

Microsoft has finally announced a launch date for its Surface Windows 8 Pro tablet. The new offering, which follows the Tegra-based Surface RT variant, is set to arrive on February 9 at a range of US retailers and select outlets in Canada.

The Surface RT was aimed at the tablet market, however the Surface Windows 8 Pro will essentially serve as Microsoft’s own competitor in the ultrabook arena. The device steps up to an Intel Core i5 chip capable of running the full range of Windows 7 and Windows 8 applications.

The Pro model is available in 64GB or 128GB editions, each with a Surface pen for stylus input and a traditional keyboard for use as a notebook. The design shares the same 10.6-inch display size as the Surface RT, but with full 1920×1080 HD resolution.

The Surface Windows 8 Pro tablet starts at $899, in contrast to the $499 entry point for the Surface RT.
