Click, click, click, click, have you seen the advert? Microsoft has now unveiled the pricing for both of its ARM-based Surface RT tablets and then promptly pulled the information, but fear not, we have it here!

The Surface, with it's 10.6-inch display powered by Windows RT, is due to arrive on October 26th 2012 and will be priced in the US as follows...
  • $499 for the 32GB version without Touch Cover
  • $599 for the 32GB version with the Touch Cover
  • $699 for the 64GB model with a Touch Cover included
Over in Germany, the pricing is...
  • €479 for the 32GB version without Touch Cover
  • €579 for the 32GB version with the Touch Cover
  • €679 for the 64GB model with a Touch Cover included
It's nice to see Microsoft not doing an Apple, by not replacing $ signs with € or £ signs. The 9.3mm thin tablet weighs just 1.5lbs (685g) and includes a built-in kickstand and vapor-deposited (PVD) magnesium case.

Shame the $199 rumours were so far off base.
OKay, that was always extremely unlikely. I would have been tempted at £250-300 for the touch-cover version, but £480 is way too much.

on the US site, the cheapest version is now on a 3 weeks pre-order, maybe first shipment sold out?
