    Default Surface Windows 8 Pro tablet to launch Feb. 9 starting at $899

    Microsoft has just announced that Surface Windows 8 Pro will be available in the U.S. and Canada on Feb. 9, at a starting price of $899, and will be sold at Best Buy, Staples and Microsoft retail storesSurface RT. The new Surface is made available in 64GB and 128GB configurations. It will include a pen you can draw or jot notes with, and function either as a tablet or a laptop. It houses an Intel Core i5 processor.

    Microsoft designed Windows 8 so it works on what we think of as traditional PCs as well as tablets. The one-size-fits-all thinking is how Surface was conceived. But the approach carries risks. It's worth noting rival Apple took a decidedly different approach with the iPad and its Macs — Apple keeps the iOS and OS X operating systems separate.

    Like Surface RT, the Pro version will let you take advantage of optional "Touch Covers," clever outer cases that double as surprisingly usable Qwerty-style keyboards. Microsoft says three new Limited Edition Touch Covers are coming, in red, magenta and cyan, for about $130 each. A $70 Wedge Touch Mouse for Surface with "four-way" scrolling is another new option.

    In a blog post announcing the news, Microsoft Surface General Manager Panos Panay, refers to Surface Windows 8 Pro as a "powerful, work-ready device that is just at home in the boardroom as it is the family room." I'll let you know if I agree once I've had chance to put Surface Pro through its full paces.
