    As reported by forum member 2disbetter, the Surface RT pre-order page at the Microsoft Online Store is now live.

    I just completed a preorder. The page suggests that preorders could be delivered by 26 October.

    Note that I don't see any immediate way to order the 64GB version with other than the black touch (typing) cover...

    No surprise; the Surface.com website has now been significantly expanded with information about Surface RT, Touch and Type Covers and accessories (extra AC adapter, and two interface cables):

    Surface with Windows RT includes Microsoft Skydrive

    There is a hot link for Surface Pro, but predictably no real content, yet. HOWEVER, if you check the specs section, you will find expanded information about both versions. Interestingly, Surface Pro does not feature NFC and will only have GPS if you buy a later model with Broadband (WWAN) capability.

    Pre-order delivery dates for the least expensive Surface RT option ($499) have reportedly slipped to about three weeks. See:
