I hope you weren’t too desperate to get a Microsoft Surface anytime Zune soon.  They are only available on pre-order in select countries (you know … the ones where Windows Phone sort of works):

  • Australia
  • France
  • Canada
  • USA
  • Germany
  • UK


Hmm, and $499 seems to convert into EUR479.  Strange that!?!?!

Hard luck!  Try a Dell XPS 10 or Samsung ATIV instead.  No such limitations there … and you get the option of a real keyboard with contained battery … the XPS10 has 20+ hours of video play time with the keyboard attached.

  1. eh, Windows Phone services are pretty mediocre in Australia. That list of release countries merely mirrors the Day 1 release countries Apple uses. And Apple adds Australia to that list because the incrementals for Australia are pretty small (now that their – Apple’s – media services are pretty well established world wide) and they have absurd iDevice market share there.
