We may have thought Microsoft a little crazy when they decided to price the Surface RT tablet at the same levels as Apple’s iPad, but Ballmer and Co. have sold out of the base model 32GB tablet. The Microsoft online store shows that the shipping times for the 32GB Surface RT without Black Touch Cover have slipped to “within 3 weeks,” suggesting that those who haven’t yet preordered and want a more colorful cover for their Surface tablet will have to wait a few weeks after the 10/26 launch date to get their hands on the Surface RT.
Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Microsoft was preparing 3 to 5 million Surface RT tablets over the course of the holiday season, so being sold out of the base model in under 24 hours could spell significant holiday sales for Microsoft, though we don’t know how many units Microsoft made available for preorder, or how many of those units were dedicated to the base 32GB without cover SKU.
The 32GB and 64GB Surface RT Tablets with Black Touch Cover are still showing a delivery date of October 26th, though we’re inclined to believe that most would-be Surface owners would prefer to opt for a more colorful keyboard combination.
