Microsoft Vies for Business Tablet Supremacy With Surface Pro 
Highly Anticipated Next Generation Hybrid Device Launching at London
Drugs 
RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- The Surface
Pro tablet makes its official debut at London Drugs tomorrow. The
highly anticipated device pairs the convenience of a tablet with the
functionality of a laptop computer. Equipped with a standard version
of Windows 8 and the ability to run touch enhanced versions of Word,
Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, the Surface Pro promises robust
computing in a slimmed-down package. 
"It's lighter than a notebook, runs more applications than a
conventional tablet and it's more portable than a laptop," said
Cedric Tetzel, Merchandise Manager - Computers, London Drugs. "The
Surface Pro is unlike anything customers have seen before and it will
change consumer expectations of what can be done using devices in the
tablet category." 
Microsoft is offering US-Canada parity pricing for Surface products.
The 128 Gb Surface Pro is $999.00 and the 64Gb Surface Pro is
$899.00. Both models include Windows 8. 
London Drugs is also carrying a full line up of Surface accessories
such as the TypeCover ($129.99), the TouchCover ($119.99 - $129.99)
and the HDAV adapter ($39.99). The Surface RT, Microsoft's first
version of the Surface tablet, is also available at London Drugs
($599.99 for the 32GB with TouchCover, $699.00 for the 64Gb with
TouchCover). 
Customers can secure their Surface Pro online through the London
Drugs website. Devices will be available for pickup at BC locations
on February 9th, Alberta and Saskatchewan locations on February 11th,
and Winnipeg locations on February 12th. 
London Drugs' Computer Managers will be available to demonstrate the
new Surface Pro as well as support customers in the migration of
their information from previous devices.
