Microsoft won't be able to release the Surface Pro tablet in January as it originally said, but the tech giant will miss its deadline only by a few days.
The Redmond, Wash.,-based company announced Tuesday that the Surface Pro will go on sale Feb. 9.
The Surface Pro starts at $899 and offers more power and capabilities than the Surface RT. Unlike its limited sibling, the Surface Pro can run Windows 7 applications and uses Windows 8 Pro.
The base model Surface Pro comes with 64 gigabytes of storage and a stylus that Microsoft is calling the "Surface pen." The Surface Pro runs on an Intel Core i5 processor and its 10.6-inch screen has a full HD 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution, which is an improvement over the display on the Surface RT.
The Surface Pro is also available in a 128 GB version for $999.
The Surface Pro will be available from Microsoft Stores, Staples and Best Buy in the U.S. Microsoft will also release the Surface Pro in Canada on the same date.
