Surface to head to brick-and-mortar stores
Microsoft's Surface is expected to turn up in Harvey Norman this Friday, expanding beyond its online-only start.
The Financial Review discovered the change in strategy, which will no doubt boost Microsoft's sales — although, without official figures, it seems that analysts aren't agreeing on whether the tablet is doing well or not.
It's looking like this may be a global strategy as well, with rumours that the tablet is about to also hit brick-and-mortar stores in the US soon.
While the restricted, ARM-based Surface RT is all that's available right now, Microsoft is expected to release the full-featured Surface Pro in January 2013.
