Our Surface tablet has arrived right on time, letting us share with your our thoughts on just what Microsoft’s managed to achieve here. You’ll be hearing a lot more from us about Surface as we continue to dig in to the new experience, but not everyone who was expecting to have a Surface tablet by now is as lucky as us, with reports coming in that Microsoft is pushing back delivery estimates for certain pre-orders.
Instead of Surface tablets arriving today, Microsoft has changed its tune to saying that some pre-orders will only ship as of today, and it could take until next Tuesday before the tablets actually arrive. Supposedly, this delay is affecting orders placed internationally, so US orders may be safe.
Another couple days isn’t the end of the world, sure, but for those Microsoft fans who had been looking forward to playing with one of the company’s new tablets all weekend long, it surely isn’t welcome news.
Have any readers who ordered a Surface tablet for outside the US received any updates as to when you might expect your tablet to arrive?
