The Japanese version of the Microsoft Surface website shows the 256GB version of the tablet selling for 119,800 yen ($1,171) and the 128GB version going for 99,800 yen ($975). The 256GB edition will make its debut in Japan, while the 64GB model apparently won’t be sold in the country at all.
Both tablets will come with Windows 8 Pro and Office Home and Business 2013 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook). The Surface Pro tablet will also debut to Japanese buyers some exclusive Touch Cover accessories.
Japan is last on the list to get the Microsoft Surface Pro. Other countries like Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom have already been able to buy the new tablet.
When will the U.S. have the new larger version? Microsoft has been very quiet about new hardware announcements. A representative for the company told CNET.com: “We are excited at the tremendous response to the upcoming Surface Pro availability in Japan. With regards to future markets and other details, we have nothing to share at this time.”
