Microsoft’s Surface computer will be released in 12 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The system, which was previously only available in the US and Canada, will be supported by an expansion of partner programmes in the new markets and Microsoft is hoping to include over 120 partners from 11 countries.
“Since our initial launch of Microsoft Surface, we’ve received an overwhelming response from companies worldwide,” said Panos Panay, general manager of Microsoft Surface. “We’re excited to be entering into these new markets with partners that have already begun exploring many possibilities of Microsoft Surface locally.”
Microsoft Surface is now available in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Qatar, Spain, Sweden, the United Arab Emirates and the UK.
